Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

4.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

5.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

6.
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

7.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

8.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

10.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

11.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

12.
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

13.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

14.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

15.
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

16.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

21.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

22.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

23.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

24.
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

25.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

26.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

27.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

28.
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

29.
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

30.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
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

33.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

34.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

35.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

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

37.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

38.
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

39.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

40.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

41.
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

42.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

43.
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

44.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

45.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

46.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

47.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

48.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

49.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

50.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William
