Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

2.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

3.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

10.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

11.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

12.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

13.
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

14.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

15.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
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

17.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

18.
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

19.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

23.
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

24.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

25.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

26.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

27.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

28.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

29.
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

30.
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

31.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

32.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

33.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

34.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

35.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

36.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

37.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

38.
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

39.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

40.
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

41.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

42.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

43.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

44.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

45.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

46.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

47.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

48.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

49.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

50.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden
