Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

2.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

3.
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

4.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

5.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

6.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

7.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

8.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

9.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

10.
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

11.
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

12.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

13.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

14.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

15.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

18.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

19.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

23.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

27.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

28.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

29.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

30.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

31.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

32.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

33.
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

34.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

35.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

36.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

37.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

38.
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

39.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

40.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

41.
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

42.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

43.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

44.
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

45.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

49.
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

50.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette
