Children

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.
- Anatole Broyard
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

2.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

3.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

4.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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.
Fran Lebowitz

8.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

9.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

10.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

11.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

12.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

13.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

14.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

15.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

16.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

17.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

18.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

19.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

20.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

21.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

22.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

23.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

24.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

25.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

26.
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

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

28.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

30.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

31.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

32.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

33.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

34.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

35.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

36.
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.

37.
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.

38.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

39.

Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

41.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

42.
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

43.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

44.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

45.
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

46.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

47.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

48.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

49.
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.
Torrie, Alfred

50.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya
