Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
- Mead, Margaret
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

3.
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

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

5.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

6.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

7.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

8.
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

9.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

10.
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

11.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

12.
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.

13.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

14.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

15.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

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

18.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

19.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

20.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

21.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

22.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

23.
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

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
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

26.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

27.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

28.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

29.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

30.
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

31.
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

32.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

33.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

34.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

35.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

36.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

37.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

38.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

39.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

40.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

41.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

42.
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

43.
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

44.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

45.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

46.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

47.
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

48.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

49.
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

50.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis
