Children

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.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

2.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

3.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

4.
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

5.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

6.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

7.
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

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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

15.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

16.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
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

18.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

19.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

20.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

21.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

22.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

23.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

24.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

25.
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

26.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

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

28.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

29.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

30.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

31.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

32.
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

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

35.
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

36.
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.

37.
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.

38.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

39.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

40.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

41.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
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

47.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold
