Children

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.

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

2.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

3.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

4.
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

5.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

6.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

13.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

14.
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

15.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

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

17.
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

18.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

19.
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

20.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

21.
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

22.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

23.
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

24.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

25.
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

26.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

27.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

28.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

29.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

30.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

31.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

32.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

33.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

35.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

36.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

37.
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

38.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

40.
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

41.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

42.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

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.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

45.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

46.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

47.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

48.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

49.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

50.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul
