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.
- Josh Lieb
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

2.
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

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

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

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

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

10.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

11.
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

12.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

13.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

14.
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

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

Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

17.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

18.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

21.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

22.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

23.
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

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

26.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

28.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

29.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

30.
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

31.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
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

37.
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

38.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

39.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

40.
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

41.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

42.
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

43.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

44.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

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

46.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

47.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

48.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

49.
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

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
