Best Quotes about Children
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.

Rousseau, Jean Jacques

Children always turn to the light.

Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.

The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.

Menninger, Karl A.

Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
