Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

2.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

3.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

4.
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

5.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

8.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

9.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

10.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

11.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

12.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

13.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

14.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

18.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

21.
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

22.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

23.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

24.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

25.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

26.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

27.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

28.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

29.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

30.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

31.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

32.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

36.
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

37.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

38.
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

39.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

40.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

41.
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

42.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

43.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

44.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

45.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

46.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

47.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

48.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

49.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

50.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
