Children

Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
- Wilde, Oscar
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

2.
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

3.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

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

5.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

6.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

7.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

8.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

9.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

10.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

11.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

14.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

15.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

16.
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

17.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

18.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

19.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

20.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

21.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

22.
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

23.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

27.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

28.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

29.
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

30.
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

31.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

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.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

36.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

37.
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

38.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

39.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

40.
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

41.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

42.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

43.
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

44.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

45.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

46.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

47.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

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
