Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

7.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

8.
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

9.
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

10.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

11.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

12.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

13.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

14.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

15.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

16.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

17.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

18.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

21.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

26.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

27.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

28.
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

29.
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

30.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

31.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

32.
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

33.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

34.
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

35.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

36.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

37.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

38.
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

39.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

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

41.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

42.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

43.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

44.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

45.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

46.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

47.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

48.
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

49.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

50.
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
