Children

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.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

2.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

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

4.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

5.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

6.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

7.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

8.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

9.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

10.
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

11.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

12.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

13.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

14.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

15.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

16.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

17.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

18.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

19.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

22.
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

23.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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.

29.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

30.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

31.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

32.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

33.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

34.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

35.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

39.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

40.
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

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

42.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

48.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

49.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

50.
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
