Children

For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

3.
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

4.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

5.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

6.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

7.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

8.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

9.
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

10.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

11.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

12.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

13.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

14.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

15.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

16.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

17.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

18.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

19.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

20.
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

21.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

22.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

23.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

24.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

25.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

26.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

27.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

28.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

29.
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

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

35.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

36.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

39.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

40.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

41.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

42.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

44.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

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 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

47.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

48.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

50.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
