Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

2.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

4.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

5.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

6.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

7.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

11.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

12.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

13.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

14.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

15.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

16.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

17.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

18.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

19.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

21.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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

23.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

24.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

25.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

26.
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

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

28.
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.

29.
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.

30.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
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

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

34.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

35.
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

36.
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

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.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

40.
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

41.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

42.
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

43.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

44.
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

45.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

46.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

47.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

48.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

49.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
