Children

But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

2.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

4.
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

5.
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

6.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

10.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

11.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

12.
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

13.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

14.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

15.
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

16.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

17.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

18.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

19.
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.

20.
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

21.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

27.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

29.
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.

30.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

31.
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

32.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

33.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

34.
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

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

37.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

38.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

39.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

40.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

41.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

42.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

43.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

44.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

45.
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

46.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

49.
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

50.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse
