Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

2.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

3.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

4.
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

5.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

6.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

7.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

8.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

9.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

10.
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

11.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

14.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

15.
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

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

18.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

19.
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

20.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

21.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

22.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

23.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

24.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

25.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

30.
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

31.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

32.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

35.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

36.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

37.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

38.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

39.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

40.
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

41.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

42.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

43.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

45.
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

46.
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

47.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

48.
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.

49.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

50.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De
