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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

5.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

6.
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

7.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

8.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

9.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

10.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

11.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

12.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

13.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

14.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

15.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

16.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

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

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.
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

21.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

22.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

23.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

24.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

25.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

26.
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

27.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

28.
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

29.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

30.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

31.
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

32.
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

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

34.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
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

38.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

39.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

40.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

41.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

42.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

43.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

45.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

46.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

47.
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

48.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

49.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

50.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund
