Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

2.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

4.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

5.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

6.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

7.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

8.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

9.
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

10.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

11.
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

12.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

13.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

14.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

15.
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

16.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

17.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

18.
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

19.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

22.
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

23.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

24.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

25.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

26.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

27.
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

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

30.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

31.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

32.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

34.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

37.
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.

38.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

39.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

40.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

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

45.
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

46.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

47.
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

48.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

49.
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

50.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
