Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

4.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

5.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

6.
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

7.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

8.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

11.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

14.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

15.
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.

16.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

17.
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

18.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

19.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

22.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

23.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

24.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

25.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

29.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

30.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

31.
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

32.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

33.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

38.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

39.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

40.
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

41.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

42.
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

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

45.
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

46.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

47.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

48.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

49.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

50.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
