Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

3.
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

4.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

5.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

6.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

8.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

9.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

10.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

11.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

14.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

15.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

16.
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

17.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

18.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

19.
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

20.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

21.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

22.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

23.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

26.
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

27.
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

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

29.
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

30.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

31.
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

32.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

33.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

34.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

35.
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

36.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

37.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

38.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

39.
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

40.
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

41.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

42.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

43.
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

44.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

45.
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

46.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

47.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

48.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

49.
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

50.
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
