Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

2.
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

3.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

4.
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

5.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

6.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

7.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

8.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

9.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

10.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

11.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

12.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

13.
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

14.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

15.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

16.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

17.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

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

19.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

20.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

21.
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

22.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

23.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

30.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

31.
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

32.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

36.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

37.
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

38.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

39.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

42.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

43.
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

44.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

45.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

46.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

47.
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

48.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John
