Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

2.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

3.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

4.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

5.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

6.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

7.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

8.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

9.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

10.
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

11.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

12.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

13.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

14.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

15.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

16.
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

17.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
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

19.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

20.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

21.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

22.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

23.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

24.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

25.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

26.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

27.
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.

28.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

29.
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

30.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

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

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
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.
Roosevelt, Theodore

34.
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

35.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

39.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

40.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

41.
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

42.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

43.
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

44.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

45.
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

46.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

47.
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

48.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

49.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

50.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
