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
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Never have children, only grand children.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
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.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
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
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
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
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Children need models rather than critics.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
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
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
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
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
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.
