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

2.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

3.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

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

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

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

8.
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

9.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

10.
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

11.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

12.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

13.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

14.
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

15.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

16.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

20.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

21.
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

22.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

26.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

27.
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

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

30.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

31.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

32.
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

33.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

34.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

35.
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

36.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

37.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

38.
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

39.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

40.
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

41.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

42.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

43.
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

44.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

45.
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

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

48.
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

49.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus
