Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

3.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

4.
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

5.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

6.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

7.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

8.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

9.
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

10.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

11.
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

12.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

13.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

14.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

15.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

19.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

20.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

21.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

22.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

23.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

26.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

27.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

28.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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.
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

31.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

34.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

39.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

40.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

45.
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

46.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

47.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

48.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

49.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

50.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn
