Children

Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
- Dyer, Wayne
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

5.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

6.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

7.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

8.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

9.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

10.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

11.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

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

14.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

15.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

18.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

19.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

20.
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

21.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

22.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

23.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

24.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

25.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

26.
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

27.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

28.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

30.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

33.
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

34.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

35.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

36.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

37.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
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

40.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

41.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

42.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

43.
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

44.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

45.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

46.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

47.
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

48.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

49.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

50.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander
