Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

5.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

6.
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

7.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
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

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
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

14.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

15.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

23.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

24.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

25.
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.

26.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

27.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

28.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

30.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

32.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

33.
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

34.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

40.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

41.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

42.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

43.
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

44.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

45.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

46.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

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

48.
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

49.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
