Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

2.
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

3.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

4.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

5.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

6.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

8.
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

9.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

14.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

15.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

16.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

18.
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

19.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

20.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

21.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

22.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

23.
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.

24.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

25.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

26.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

28.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

29.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

30.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
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

34.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

35.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

36.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

40.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

41.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

42.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

43.
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

44.
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

45.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

46.
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

47.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

50.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David
