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.
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

2.
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

3.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

4.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

5.
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

6.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

7.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

8.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

9.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

10.
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

11.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

12.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

13.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

14.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

15.
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.

16.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

17.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

18.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

19.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

27.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

28.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

29.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

30.
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

31.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

32.
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

33.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

34.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

35.
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

36.
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

37.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

39.
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

40.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

41.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

42.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
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

44.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

45.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

46.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

47.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

50.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
