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.
- Anna Quindlen
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

3.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

4.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

5.
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

6.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

7.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

8.
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

9.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

10.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

11.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

12.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

13.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

14.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

15.
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

16.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

17.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

18.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

19.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

20.
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

21.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

22.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

23.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

24.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

25.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

26.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

27.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

28.
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.

29.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
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

32.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

37.
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

38.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

39.
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

40.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

41.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

42.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

43.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

44.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

45.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
