Children

I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
- Swift, Jonathan
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
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

3.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

4.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

5.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

6.
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.

7.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

8.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

9.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

10.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

11.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

13.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

14.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

15.
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

16.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

17.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

18.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

19.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

20.
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

21.
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

22.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

23.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

24.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

25.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

26.
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

27.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

28.
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

29.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

30.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

31.
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

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

34.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

37.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

38.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

42.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

43.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

44.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

45.
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

46.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

47.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

48.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

49.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

50.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark
