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.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

2.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

3.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

4.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

6.
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

7.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

8.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

9.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

10.
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

11.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

12.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

13.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

14.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

15.
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

16.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

17.
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.
Swift, Jonathan

18.
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

19.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

20.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
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.
Wilder, Thornton

22.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

23.
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

24.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
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

26.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

28.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

29.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

30.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

31.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

32.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

33.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

34.
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.
Lamb, Charles

35.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

36.
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

37.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

38.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

39.
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.
Rich, Adrienne

40.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

41.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

42.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

43.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

44.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

45.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

46.
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.
Angelou, Maya

47.
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.
Landers, Ann

48.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

49.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

50.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al
