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

2.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

3.
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

4.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

5.
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

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.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

8.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

9.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

10.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

11.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

12.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

13.
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

14.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

15.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

16.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

17.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

18.
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

19.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

22.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

23.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

29.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

31.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

32.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

33.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

34.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

35.
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

36.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

37.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

38.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

39.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

40.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

41.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

42.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

48.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

49.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

50.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb
