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

2.
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

3.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

4.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

5.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

9.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

10.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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

12.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

13.
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

14.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

15.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

16.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

17.
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

18.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

19.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

20.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

21.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

22.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

23.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

24.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

25.
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.

26.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

27.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

28.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

29.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

30.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

31.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

32.
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

33.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

34.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

35.
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

36.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

37.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

38.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

39.
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

40.
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

41.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

42.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

46.
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

47.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

48.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

49.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

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
