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

2.
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

3.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

4.
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

5.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

6.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

7.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

8.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

9.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

10.
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.

11.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

12.
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

13.
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

14.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

15.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

17.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

18.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

19.
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

20.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

21.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

22.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

23.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

24.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

25.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

26.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

27.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

28.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

29.
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

30.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

31.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

32.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

33.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

34.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

35.
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

36.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

37.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

38.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

39.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

40.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

41.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

42.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

43.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.

Meynell, Alice

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

46.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

47.
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

48.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

50.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al
