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 need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

2.
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

3.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

7.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

8.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

9.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

10.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

11.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

15.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

17.
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

18.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

19.
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

20.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

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

22.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

23.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

24.
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

25.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

26.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

27.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

30.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

31.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

32.
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

33.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

34.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

35.
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

36.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

37.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.

We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

47.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

49.

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.
