Children

What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
- Buck, Pearl S.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

3.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

4.
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

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

6.
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

7.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

8.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

9.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

10.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

11.
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

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

16.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

17.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

18.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

19.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

22.
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

23.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

24.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

25.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

26.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

27.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

28.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

29.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

30.
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

31.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

32.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

37.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

38.
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

39.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

40.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

41.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

42.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

44.
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

45.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

46.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

48.
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

49.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

50.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma
