Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

2.
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

3.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

4.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

7.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

8.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

12.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

13.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

14.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

15.
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.

16.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

17.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

18.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

19.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

23.
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

24.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
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

26.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
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

28.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

29.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

30.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

31.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

32.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

33.
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

34.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

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.
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

37.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

38.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

39.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

40.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

41.
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

42.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

43.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

44.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

45.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

46.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

47.
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

48.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

49.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

50.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob
