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

2.
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

3.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

4.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

5.
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

6.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

11.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

12.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

13.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

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

15.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

16.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

17.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

18.
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

19.
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

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

21.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

22.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

24.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

25.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

29.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

30.
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

31.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

32.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

33.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

34.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

37.
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

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

40.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

41.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

42.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

43.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

44.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

45.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

46.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

47.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

48.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

49.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

50.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
