Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

3.
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

4.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

5.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

6.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

7.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

8.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

9.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

10.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

11.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

12.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

13.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

14.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

15.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

16.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

17.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

18.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

19.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

20.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

21.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

22.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

23.
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

24.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

25.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

26.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

28.
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

29.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

30.
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

31.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

32.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

33.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

34.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

35.
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

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

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

39.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

40.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

41.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

42.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

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

45.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

46.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

47.
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

48.
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

49.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

50.
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
