Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
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

4.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

5.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

6.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

7.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

8.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

9.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

10.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

11.
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

12.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

13.
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

14.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

15.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

16.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

17.
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

18.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

19.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

20.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

21.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

22.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

23.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

24.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

25.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

27.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

28.
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

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

31.
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

32.
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

33.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

34.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

35.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

36.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

37.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

38.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

39.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

40.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

41.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

42.
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

43.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

45.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

46.
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

47.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

48.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

49.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

50.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
