Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

3.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

4.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

5.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

6.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

7.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

8.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

9.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

10.
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

11.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

12.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

13.
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

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
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

16.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

17.
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

18.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

19.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

20.
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.
Larkin, Philip

21.
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

22.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

23.
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.
Orwell, George

24.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

25.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

26.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

27.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

28.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

29.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

30.
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

31.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

32.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

33.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

34.
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

35.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

36.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

37.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

38.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

39.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

40.
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.
Jordan, June

41.
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.
Eucharista Ward

42.
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.
Tracy, Brian

43.
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.
Cox, Marcelene

44.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

45.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

46.
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

47.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

48.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

49.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

50.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller
