Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

2.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

3.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

4.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

5.
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

6.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

8.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

9.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

11.
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

12.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

13.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

14.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

15.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

18.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

19.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

20.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

21.
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

22.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

23.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

24.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

25.
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

26.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

27.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

28.
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

29.
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

30.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

31.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

32.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

33.
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

34.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

35.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

36.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

38.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
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

40.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

41.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

42.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

43.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

44.
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.

45.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

46.
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

47.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

48.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

49.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

50.
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
