Best Quotes about Children

1.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

2.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

3.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

4.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

5.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

6.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

7.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

8.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

9.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

10.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

11.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

12.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

13.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

14.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

15.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

16.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

17.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

18.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

19.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

20.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

21.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

22.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

23.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

24.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

26.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

27.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

28.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

29.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

30.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

31.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

32.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

35.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

36.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

37.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

38.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

40.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

41.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

42.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

43.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

44.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

45.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

46.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

47.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
