Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

2.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

3.
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

4.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

5.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

6.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

7.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

8.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

9.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

10.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

11.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

13.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

14.
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

15.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

16.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

17.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

18.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

19.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
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

22.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

24.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

25.
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

26.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

27.
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

28.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

31.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

35.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

37.
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

38.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

39.
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

40.
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.

41.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

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.
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

44.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

45.
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

46.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

47.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

48.
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

49.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

50.
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
