Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

4.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

5.
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

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

8.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

9.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

10.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

11.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

12.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

13.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

14.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

15.
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

16.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

17.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

18.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

19.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

21.
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

22.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

23.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

24.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

25.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

26.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

27.
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

28.
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

29.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

30.
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

31.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

32.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

33.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

34.
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

35.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

36.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

37.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

38.
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

39.
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

40.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

44.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

49.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

50.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman
