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.
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.

2.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

4.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

5.
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

6.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

7.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

8.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

9.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

10.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

11.
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

12.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

13.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

14.
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

15.
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

16.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

17.
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

18.
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

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

20.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

21.
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

22.
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

23.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

24.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

25.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

26.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

27.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

33.
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

34.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

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

37.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

38.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

39.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

40.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

41.
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

42.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

43.
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

44.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

45.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

46.
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

47.
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

48.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

49.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

50.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
