Children

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.
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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

6.
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

7.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

8.
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

9.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

10.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

12.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

16.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
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

18.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

19.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

20.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

21.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

24.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

25.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

26.
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

27.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

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

29.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

30.
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

31.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

32.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

33.
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

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

35.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

36.
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

37.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

38.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

39.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

40.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

41.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

42.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

45.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

46.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

50.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
