Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

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

6.
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

7.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

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

11.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

12.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

13.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

18.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

19.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

24.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

25.
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

26.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

27.
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

28.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

29.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
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

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 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

37.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

38.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

39.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

40.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

41.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

42.
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

43.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

44.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

45.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

46.
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

47.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

50.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar
