Children

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.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

3.
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

4.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

5.
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

6.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

7.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

8.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

9.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

10.
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.

11.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

12.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

13.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

14.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

15.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

16.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

17.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

18.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

19.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

20.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

24.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

25.
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

26.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

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

29.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

30.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

31.
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

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

34.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

35.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

36.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

37.
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

38.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

40.
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

41.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

42.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

43.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

44.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

45.
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

46.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

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