Best Quotes about Children
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
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.
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.
Children need models rather than critics.
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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
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.
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.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
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.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
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.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
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 reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
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.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
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
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.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
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.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
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.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
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]
