Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
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

3.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

4.
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

5.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

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

10.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

11.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

12.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

13.
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

14.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

15.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

16.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

17.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

18.
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

19.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

20.
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

21.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

22.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

23.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

24.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

25.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

26.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

27.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

28.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

29.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

30.
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

31.
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

32.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

33.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

34.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

35.
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.

36.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

41.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

42.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

43.
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

44.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

45.
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

46.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

47.
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

48.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

49.
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

50.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh
