Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

2.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

3.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

4.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

9.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

10.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

11.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

12.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

13.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

14.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

15.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

16.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

17.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

18.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

19.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

20.
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

21.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

22.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

23.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

24.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

25.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

26.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

27.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

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.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

30.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

31.
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

32.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

33.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

34.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

35.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

39.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

40.
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

41.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

42.
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

43.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

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

45.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

46.
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

47.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

48.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

49.
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

50.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis
