Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

2.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

3.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

4.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

5.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

6.
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

7.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

8.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

9.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

10.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

11.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

13.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

14.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

15.
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

16.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

17.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

18.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

19.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

20.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

21.
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

22.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

23.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

24.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

25.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

29.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

30.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

31.
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

32.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

33.
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

34.
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

35.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

36.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

37.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

40.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

41.
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

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
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.

44.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

45.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

46.
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.
Ruskin, John

47.
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.

48.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

49.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

50.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria
