Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

2.
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

3.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

4.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

5.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

6.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

7.
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

8.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

9.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

10.
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

11.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

12.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

13.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
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.

16.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

17.
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

18.
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

19.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

22.
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

23.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

24.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

25.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
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

28.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

29.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

30.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

33.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

34.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

35.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

36.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

37.
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

38.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

39.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

40.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

41.
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

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
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

44.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

45.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

46.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

47.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

48.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

49.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

50.
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
