Best Quotes about Children
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
The child is the father of the man.
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
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
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.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
The wildest colts make the best horses.
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.
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
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
Adults are obsolete children.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
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 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.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
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.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
Never have children, only grand children.
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.
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.

Your children need your presence more than your presents.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
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
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.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
