Children

D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
- W. Somerset Maugham
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

2.
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

3.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

4.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

5.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

6.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

8.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

9.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

10.
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

11.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

12.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

13.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

14.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

15.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

16.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

17.
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.

18.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

19.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

20.
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

21.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

22.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

23.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

25.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

26.
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

27.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

28.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

29.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

30.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

31.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

32.
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

33.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

34.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

35.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

36.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

37.
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

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

40.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

41.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

42.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

43.
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

44.
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

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John
