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

2.
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

3.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

4.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

5.
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

6.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

7.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

11.
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

12.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

13.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
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

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.
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

17.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

18.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

19.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

20.
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

21.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

22.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

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

28.
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

29.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

30.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

31.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

32.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

33.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

34.
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

35.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
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

38.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

40.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

41.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

42.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

43.
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.
Updike, John

44.
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

45.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

46.
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

47.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

48.
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

49.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

50.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma
