Children

The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
- Auden, W. H.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

4.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

5.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

6.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

7.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

8.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

9.
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.

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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

15.
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

16.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

17.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

18.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

19.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

20.
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

21.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

22.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

26.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

27.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

28.
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

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

31.
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

32.
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

33.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

34.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

35.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

36.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

37.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

38.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

39.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

40.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

41.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

42.
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

43.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

44.
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

45.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

46.
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

47.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

48.
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

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson
