Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
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

3.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

4.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

5.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

6.
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

7.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

8.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

9.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

10.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

11.
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

12.
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

13.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

14.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

15.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

16.
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

17.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

18.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

19.
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

20.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

21.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

22.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

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

24.
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.
Shan, Eda J. Le

25.
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

26.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

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

28.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

29.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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

31.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

32.
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

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

35.
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

36.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

37.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

38.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

39.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

40.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.

Davis, Bette

42.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.

Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

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

Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

46.
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.

Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

48.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

50.

Norman Douglas
