Children

Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
- Franklin, Benjamin
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

2.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

3.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

4.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

5.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

6.
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

7.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

8.
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

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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

14.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
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

16.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

17.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

18.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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

20.
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

21.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

24.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

29.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

30.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

31.
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

32.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

33.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

34.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

38.
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

39.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

40.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

41.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

42.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

43.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

44.
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

45.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

46.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

47.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

48.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

49.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

50.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
