Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

3.
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

4.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

5.
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

6.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

7.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

8.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

9.
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

10.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

14.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

15.
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

16.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

17.
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

18.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

19.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

22.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

23.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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.
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

26.
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

27.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

28.
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

29.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

30.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

31.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
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

33.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

34.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

35.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

36.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

37.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

38.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

39.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

40.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

41.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

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

43.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

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.
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

46.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

47.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

48.
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

49.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

50.
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
