Children

If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
- Updike, John
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

2.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

3.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

4.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

5.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

6.
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

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

8.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

9.
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

10.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

11.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

12.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

13.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

19.
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

20.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

21.
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

22.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

23.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

24.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

25.
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

26.
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.

27.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

28.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

29.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

30.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

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

32.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

33.
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

34.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

35.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

36.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

37.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

39.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

40.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

41.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

42.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

43.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

44.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

45.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

46.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

47.
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.

48.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

49.
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

50.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
