Children

It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
- John Gray
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

2.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

3.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

4.
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

5.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

6.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

7.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

8.
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

9.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

10.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

11.
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

12.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

14.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

15.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

16.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

17.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

18.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

19.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

20.
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

21.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

22.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

23.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

24.
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.

25.
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

26.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

27.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
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

29.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

30.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

31.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

32.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

33.
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

34.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

35.
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

36.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

37.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

40.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

41.
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

42.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

43.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

47.
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

48.
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.

49.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

50.
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
