Children

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

Best Quotes about Children

1.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

2.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

4.
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

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

10.
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

11.

Proverb

18.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

19.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

20.
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

21.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

22.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

23.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

25.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

26.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

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

A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

31.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

32.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

33.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

34.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

35.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

36.
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

37.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

38.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

39.
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.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

40.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

41.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

42.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

43.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
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.
Jordan, June

46.
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

47.
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.
Hazzard, Shirley

48.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

49.
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

50.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander
