Children

No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
- Taylor, Jeremy
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

2.
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

3.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

4.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

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

6.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

7.
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

8.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

9.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

10.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

17.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

18.
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

19.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

20.
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

21.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

22.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

23.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

24.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

25.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

28.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

29.
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

30.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

33.
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

34.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

35.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

36.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

37.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

38.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

39.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

40.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

41.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

42.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

43.
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

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

45.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

47.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

48.
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

49.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

50.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies
