Children

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.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

2.
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.

3.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

4.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

5.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

6.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

8.
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

9.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

10.
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

11.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

12.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

13.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

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

15.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

16.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

17.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

21.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

25.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

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

27.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

28.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

29.
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

30.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

31.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

35.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

36.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

37.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

38.
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

39.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

40.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

41.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

42.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

43.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

44.
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

45.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

46.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

47.
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.

Swift, Jonathan

50.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
