Best Quotes about Children

1.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

2.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

4.
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

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

8.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

9.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

10.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

11.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

12.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

13.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

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

15.
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

16.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

17.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

18.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

19.
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

20.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

21.
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

22.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

23.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

24.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

25.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

26.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

27.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
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

30.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

34.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

37.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

38.
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

39.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

40.
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.
Taylor, Jeremy

41.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

42.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

43.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

44.
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

45.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

49.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

50.
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
