Best Quotes about Children

1.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

2.
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.
Gibran, Kahlil

3.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

4.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

5.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

6.
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.
Greg Garcia

7.
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.

8.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

9.
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.

10.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

11.
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

12.
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

13.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

14.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

15.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

16.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

20.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

21.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

22.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

25.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

26.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

27.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

28.
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.
Whitehorn, Katharine

29.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

31.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

32.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

33.
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.
Jordan, June

34.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

37.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

38.
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

39.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

40.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

41.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

42.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

43.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

44.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

45.
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.
Anna Quindlen

46.
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]
Bible

47.
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

48.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

49.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

50.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
