Best Quotes about Children
Where children are, there is the golden age.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
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.
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.
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.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
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
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
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.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
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.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
