Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

3.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

4.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

5.
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

6.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

7.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

8.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

9.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

10.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

11.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

12.
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

13.
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

14.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

15.
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

16.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

17.
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

18.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

19.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

22.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

23.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

24.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

26.
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

27.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

28.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

30.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

31.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

32.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

33.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

34.
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

35.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

36.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

37.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

38.
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

39.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

40.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

41.
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

42.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

43.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

44.
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.

45.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

46.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

47.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

48.
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

49.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

50.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
