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.
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

2.
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

3.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

4.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

5.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

6.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

7.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

8.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

9.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

10.
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.

11.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

12.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

13.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

14.
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

15.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

16.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

22.
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

23.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

24.
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

25.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

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

28.
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

29.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

30.
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

31.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

32.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

33.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

34.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

35.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

36.
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

37.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

38.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

39.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

40.
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.

41.
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

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

44.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

45.
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

46.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
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

48.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

49.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

50.
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
