Best Quotes about Children
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
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
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.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
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
Children always turn to the light.
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.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
The child is the father of the man.
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
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.
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.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
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.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
