Children

It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
- Bombeck, Erma
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

2.
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

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

5.
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

6.
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

7.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

8.
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

9.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

10.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

11.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

12.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

13.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

14.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

15.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

16.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

17.
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

18.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

19.
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

20.
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]
Bible

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

25.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

26.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

27.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

28.
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

29.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

30.
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

31.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

32.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

35.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

36.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

37.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

38.
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

39.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

43.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

44.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

45.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

46.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

47.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

48.
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

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna
