Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

2.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

3.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

4.
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

5.
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

6.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

10.
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

11.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

12.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

13.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

14.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

15.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

16.
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

17.
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

18.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

19.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

20.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

21.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

22.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

23.
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.

24.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

25.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

26.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

27.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

28.
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

29.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

30.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

31.
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

32.
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

33.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

34.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

35.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

36.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

40.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

41.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

42.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

47.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

48.
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

49.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

50.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb
