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.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

2.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

3.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

4.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

5.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

6.
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

7.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

11.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

12.
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

13.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
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

16.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

21.
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

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

24.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

25.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

26.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

27.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

28.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

29.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

30.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

31.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

32.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

33.
Never have children, only grandchildren.

Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

35.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

36.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

37.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

40.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

41.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

42.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

43.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

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

45.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

46.
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

47.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

48.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

49.
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

50.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English
