Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

2.
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

3.
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

4.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

5.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

6.
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

7.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

8.
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

9.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

16.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

17.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

18.
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

19.
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

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

22.
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

23.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

24.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

25.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

26.
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

27.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

28.
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

29.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

30.
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

31.
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

32.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

33.
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.

34.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

35.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

36.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

37.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

38.
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

39.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

40.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

41.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

42.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

43.
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

44.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

45.
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

46.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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

49.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

50.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton
