Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

6.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

7.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

8.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

9.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

10.
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

11.
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

12.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

13.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

14.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

15.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

16.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

17.
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

18.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

19.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

20.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

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.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

23.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

24.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

25.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

26.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

27.
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

28.
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

29.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

32.
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

33.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

34.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

35.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

36.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

37.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

38.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

39.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

40.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

41.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

42.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

43.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

44.
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

45.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

46.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

47.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

48.
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

49.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
