Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

3.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

4.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

5.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

6.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

7.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

8.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

9.
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

10.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

14.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

15.
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

16.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

17.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

18.
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

19.
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

20.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

21.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

22.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

23.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

24.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

25.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

26.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

31.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

32.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

33.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

34.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

35.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

36.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

37.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

38.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

40.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

41.
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

42.
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

43.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

44.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

45.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

46.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

47.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

48.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

49.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

50.
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
