Children

A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
- Abbott, Lyman
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

3.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

4.
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.

5.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

14.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

15.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

16.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

17.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

18.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

19.
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

20.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

21.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

22.
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

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

25.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

26.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

29.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

30.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

31.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

35.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

36.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

37.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

38.
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

39.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

40.
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

41.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

42.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

43.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

44.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

45.
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

46.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

47.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

48.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

49.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

50.
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
