Children

It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
- Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

2.
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

3.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

4.
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

5.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

6.
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

7.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

8.
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

9.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

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

12.
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

13.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

14.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

15.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

16.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

17.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

18.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

19.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

20.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

21.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

22.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

24.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
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

26.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

27.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

28.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

29.
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

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

33.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

34.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

35.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

36.
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

37.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

38.
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

39.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

40.
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

41.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

43.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

44.
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

45.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

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

47.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

48.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

49.
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

50.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett
