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.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

5.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

6.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

7.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

8.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

12.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

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

14.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

16.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

17.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
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

20.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

21.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

22.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

23.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

24.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

29.
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

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.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

32.
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

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

34.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

35.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

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

38.
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

39.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

40.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

41.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

Smith, Logan Pearsall

43.
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
