Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

2.
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

3.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

4.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

5.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

6.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

7.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

8.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

9.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

10.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

11.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
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

13.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

14.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

15.
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

16.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

17.
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

18.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

19.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

20.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

21.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

22.
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

23.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

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

25.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

26.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

27.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

28.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

29.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

30.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

31.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

32.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

33.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

34.
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

35.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

36.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

37.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

38.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

39.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

40.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

41.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

42.
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

43.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

44.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

45.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

46.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

47.
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

48.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

49.
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

50.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria
