Best Quotes about Children
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
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.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
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.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
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.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Children need models rather than critics.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
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.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
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.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
