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

2.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

3.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

4.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

5.
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

6.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

7.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

8.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

9.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

10.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

11.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

12.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

13.
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

14.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

15.
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

16.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

17.
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

18.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

19.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

20.
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.

21.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

22.
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

23.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

24.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

25.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

26.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

27.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

28.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

33.
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

34.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

35.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

36.
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

37.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

38.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

39.
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

40.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

41.
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

42.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

43.
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

44.
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

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
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

47.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
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

49.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

50.
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
