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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

2.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

3.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

4.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

5.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

6.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

7.
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

8.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

9.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

10.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

11.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

12.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

16.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

21.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

22.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

23.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

24.
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

25.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

29.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

30.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

31.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

32.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

33.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

34.
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

35.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

36.
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

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

40.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

41.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

42.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

43.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

44.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

45.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

46.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

47.
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

48.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

49.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

50.
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
