Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

2.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

3.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

4.
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

5.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

6.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

7.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

8.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

9.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

10.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

11.
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

12.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

13.
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

14.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

15.
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

16.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

17.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

18.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

19.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

20.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

21.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

22.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

23.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

24.
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

25.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

27.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

28.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

29.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

30.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

31.
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

32.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

33.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

34.
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

35.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

36.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

37.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

38.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

39.
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.

40.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

41.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

42.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

43.
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

44.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

45.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

46.
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

47.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

48.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

49.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

50.
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
