Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

3.
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

4.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

5.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

6.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

7.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

8.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

9.
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

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

12.
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

13.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

18.
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

19.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

21.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

22.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

23.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

24.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

25.
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

26.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

27.
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

28.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

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

32.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

33.
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

34.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

35.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

36.
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

37.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

38.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

39.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

40.
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

41.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

42.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

43.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

44.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

45.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

46.
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

47.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

48.
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.

49.
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

50.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray
