Children

Children need models rather than critics.
- Joubert, Joseph
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

4.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

5.
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

6.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

7.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

8.
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.

9.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

11.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

12.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

13.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

14.
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

15.
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

16.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

17.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

18.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

19.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

22.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

23.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

24.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

25.
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

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

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

28.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

29.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

30.
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

31.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

32.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

33.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

34.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

35.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

36.
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

37.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

38.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

39.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

40.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

41.
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

42.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

43.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

44.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

45.
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

46.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

47.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

48.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

49.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

50.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian
