Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

5.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

6.
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

7.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

11.
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

12.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

13.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

14.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

15.
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

16.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

17.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

18.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

19.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

20.
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

21.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

26.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

27.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

28.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

29.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

30.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

32.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

33.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

34.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

35.
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

36.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

37.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

42.
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

43.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

44.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

45.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

46.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

47.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

48.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

49.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

50.
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
