Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

3.
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.

4.
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

5.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

6.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

7.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

8.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

10.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

14.
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

15.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

19.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

20.
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

21.
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

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

23.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

24.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

25.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

26.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

27.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

28.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

29.
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

30.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

31.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

32.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

33.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

34.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

37.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

38.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

40.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

41.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

42.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

43.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

50.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.
