Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

4.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

5.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

6.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

7.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

10.
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

11.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

12.
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

13.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

14.
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

15.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

16.
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

17.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

18.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

19.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

20.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

25.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

26.
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

27.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

28.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

29.
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.

30.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

35.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

36.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

37.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

38.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

39.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

40.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

41.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

43.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

44.
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

45.
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

46.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

48.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

49.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

50.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
