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.
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

2.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

3.
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

4.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

5.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

6.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

7.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

8.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

9.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

10.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

11.
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

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

14.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

15.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

16.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

17.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

18.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

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.
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

21.
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

22.
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

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

24.
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

25.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

26.
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

27.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

28.
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.

29.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

30.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

31.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

32.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

34.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

35.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

36.
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

37.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

38.
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

39.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

40.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

41.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

42.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

43.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

44.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

45.
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.

46.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

47.
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

48.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

49.
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

50.
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
