Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

2.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

3.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

4.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

5.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

6.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

7.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

10.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

11.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

12.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

13.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

14.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

15.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

16.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

18.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

19.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

20.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

21.
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

22.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

23.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

24.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

25.
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

26.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

27.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

28.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

29.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

30.
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

31.
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

32.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

36.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

37.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

38.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

39.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

40.
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

41.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

45.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

46.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

47.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

48.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

49.
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

50.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
