Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

2.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

3.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
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

8.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

9.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

10.
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

11.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

12.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

13.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
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

16.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

17.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

18.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

19.
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

20.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

21.
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

22.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

23.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

24.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

25.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

26.
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

27.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

28.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

29.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

30.
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.

31.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

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

33.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

34.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

37.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

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

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

41.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

49.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

50.
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
