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 child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

2.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

3.
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

4.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

5.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

6.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

7.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

8.
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.

9.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

10.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

11.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

12.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

13.
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

14.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

15.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

19.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

20.
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

21.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

22.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

23.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

25.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

26.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

27.
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

28.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

29.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

30.
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

31.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

32.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

33.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

37.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
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

40.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

41.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

42.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

43.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

44.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

45.
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

46.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

47.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

48.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

49.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

50.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden
