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.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

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

6.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
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

8.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

9.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

10.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

11.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

14.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

15.
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

16.
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

17.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

18.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

27.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

28.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

29.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

30.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

31.
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

32.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

33.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

34.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

35.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

36.
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

37.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

38.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

39.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

40.
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

41.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

42.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

43.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

44.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

45.
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

46.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John
