Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

2.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

3.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

4.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

5.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

6.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

7.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

8.
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

9.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

10.
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

11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

12.
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

13.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

14.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

15.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

16.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

17.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

18.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

19.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

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

22.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

23.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

24.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

25.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

26.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

27.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

28.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

29.
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

30.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

31.
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

32.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

33.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

34.
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

35.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

36.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

37.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

38.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

39.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

40.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

41.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

42.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

44.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

45.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

46.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

47.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

48.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

49.
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

50.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
