Children

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.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

2.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

3.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

4.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

5.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

6.
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

7.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

8.
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

9.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

10.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

11.
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

12.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

13.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

14.
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

15.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

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

17.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

18.
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.

19.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

20.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

21.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

22.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

23.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

24.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

25.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

26.
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

27.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

28.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

29.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

35.
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

36.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
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

39.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

43.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

44.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

45.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

46.
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

47.
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

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

50.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert
