No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Best Quotes about Children
Be gentle with the young.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
Children always turn to the light.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
Never have children, only grandchildren.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
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
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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
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
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
