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.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

2.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

3.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

4.
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

5.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

6.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

7.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

8.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

10.
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

11.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

12.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

13.
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

14.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

15.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

17.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

18.
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

19.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

21.
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

22.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

23.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

24.
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

25.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

26.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

27.
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

28.
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

29.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

30.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

31.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

32.
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

33.
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

34.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

35.
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

36.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

37.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

38.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

39.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

40.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

41.
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.

42.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

43.
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

44.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

45.
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

46.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

47.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
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

49.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

50.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig
