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.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

2.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

3.
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

4.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

5.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

6.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

7.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

11.
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

12.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

13.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

14.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

15.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

16.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

17.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

18.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

19.
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

20.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
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

22.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

23.
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

24.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

25.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

26.
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

27.
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

28.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

29.
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

30.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

31.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

32.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

33.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

35.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

36.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
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

39.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

40.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

41.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

42.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

43.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

44.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

45.
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

46.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

47.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

48.
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

49.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

50.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales
