Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

2.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

3.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

4.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

5.
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

6.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

7.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

8.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

9.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

10.
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

11.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

12.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

13.
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

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
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

16.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

17.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

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

19.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

20.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

21.
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

22.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

25.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

26.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

27.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

28.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

29.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

30.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

31.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

32.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

33.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

34.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

35.
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

36.
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

37.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

38.
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

39.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

43.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

44.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

45.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

46.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

Wilde, Oscar

48.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

49.
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

50.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde
