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

2.
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.

3.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

4.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

5.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

6.
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

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

9.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

10.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

11.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

12.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

13.
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

14.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

15.
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

16.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

17.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

18.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

19.
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

20.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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.

30.
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

31.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

32.
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

33.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

34.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

35.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

36.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

37.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

38.
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

39.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

40.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

41.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

42.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

43.
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

44.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

45.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

46.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

47.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

48.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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

50.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois
