Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

3.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

4.
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

5.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

6.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

7.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

8.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

9.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

10.
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

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

12.
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

13.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

14.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

15.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

16.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

17.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

19.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

20.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

21.
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

22.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

23.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

25.
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

26.
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

27.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

28.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

29.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

30.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

31.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
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

34.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

35.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

36.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

37.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

38.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

39.
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

40.
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

41.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

42.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

43.
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

44.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

45.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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

47.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

48.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

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

50.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne
