Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

3.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

4.
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.
FeNelon, Francois

5.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

6.
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

7.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

8.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

9.
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

10.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

11.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

12.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

13.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

14.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

15.
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

16.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

17.
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.
Jordan, June

18.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

19.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

22.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

23.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

24.
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

25.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

27.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

28.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

29.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

30.
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

31.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
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

34.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

38.
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

39.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

40.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

41.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

42.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

43.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

44.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

45.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

46.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

47.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

48.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

49.
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

50.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James
