Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

2.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

3.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

4.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
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

7.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

8.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

9.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

10.
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.
Lamb, Charles

11.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

12.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

13.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

14.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

15.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

16.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

17.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

18.
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.
Anatole Broyard

19.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

22.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

23.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

24.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

25.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

26.
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.

27.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

28.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

29.
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

30.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

31.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

32.
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

33.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

34.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

35.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

38.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

39.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

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.
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

42.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

43.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

44.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

45.
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

46.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

47.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

48.
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.

49.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

50.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
