Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

2.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

4.
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

5.
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

6.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

7.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

8.
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

9.
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

10.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

11.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

12.
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

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

16.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

17.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

18.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

23.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

24.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

25.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

26.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

27.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

28.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

29.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

30.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

31.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

34.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

38.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

39.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

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

41.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

42.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

43.
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

44.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

45.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

46.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

47.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
