Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

2.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

3.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

4.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

5.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

6.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

7.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

8.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

9.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

10.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

12.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

13.
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

14.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

19.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

20.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

21.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

22.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

23.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
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

28.
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

29.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

30.
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

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

32.
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

33.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

34.
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

35.
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

36.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

37.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

38.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

39.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

40.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
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

43.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

44.
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.

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

46.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

47.
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

48.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

49.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

50.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold
