Children

For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

3.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

4.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

5.
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

6.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

7.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

8.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

9.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

10.
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

11.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

12.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

13.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

14.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

15.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

16.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

17.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

18.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

19.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

20.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

24.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

25.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

26.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

27.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

29.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

30.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

31.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

32.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

33.
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

34.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

37.
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

38.
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

39.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

40.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

41.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

42.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

43.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

44.
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

45.
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

46.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

47.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

48.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

50.
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
