Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

4.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

5.
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

6.
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

7.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

8.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

9.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

10.
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

11.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

13.
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

14.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

15.
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

16.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

17.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

18.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

23.
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

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

25.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

26.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

27.
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

28.
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

29.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

30.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

31.
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

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

34.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

35.
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

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.
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

38.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

39.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

40.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

41.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

45.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

46.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

47.
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

48.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

49.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

50.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson
