Children

Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
- Moustakas, Clark
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

8.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

10.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

11.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

12.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

13.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

14.
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

15.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

16.
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

17.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

18.
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

19.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

20.
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

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

23.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

24.
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

25.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

26.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

28.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

29.
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

30.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

31.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

32.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

33.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

34.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

35.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

36.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

37.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

38.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

39.
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

40.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

41.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

42.
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

43.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

44.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

45.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

49.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

50.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge
