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 are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

2.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

9.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

10.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

11.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

12.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

13.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

14.
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

15.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

16.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
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

18.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

19.
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

20.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

21.
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

22.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

23.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

24.
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

25.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

27.
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

28.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

29.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

30.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
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

32.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

33.
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

34.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

35.
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.

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

38.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

39.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

40.
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

41.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

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.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

44.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

45.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

46.
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

47.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
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

50.
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
