Children

If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

3.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

4.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

7.
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

8.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

9.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

10.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

12.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

13.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

14.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

17.
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

18.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

19.
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

20.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

21.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

22.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

30.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

31.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

32.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

36.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

37.
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

38.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

39.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

40.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

41.
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

42.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

43.
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

44.
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

45.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

46.
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

47.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

48.
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

49.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

50.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker
