Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

2.
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

3.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

4.
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

5.
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

6.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

7.
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

8.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

9.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

10.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

11.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

13.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
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

17.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

18.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

19.
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.

20.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

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.
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

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

26.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

27.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

28.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

29.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

38.
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

39.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

40.
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

41.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

42.
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.

43.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

44.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

45.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

46.
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

47.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

48.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

49.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

50.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
