Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

2.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

6.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

7.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

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.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

10.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

11.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

12.
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

13.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

14.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

15.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

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

17.
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

18.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

19.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

20.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

21.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

22.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

23.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

24.
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

25.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

26.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

27.
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

28.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

29.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

30.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

31.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

32.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

33.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

37.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

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

40.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

41.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

42.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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

44.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

45.
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

46.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

47.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

48.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

49.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

50.
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
