Children

It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

2.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

3.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

4.
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

5.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

6.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

7.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

8.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

9.
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

10.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

11.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

12.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

13.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

14.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

15.
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

16.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

18.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

19.
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

20.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

21.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

26.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

28.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

29.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

30.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

31.
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

32.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

33.
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

34.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

35.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

36.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

37.
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

38.
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.

39.
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

40.
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

41.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

42.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

43.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

44.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

45.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

46.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb
