Children

Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
- Bachelard, Gaston
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

4.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

5.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
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

8.
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

9.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

10.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

11.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

12.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

13.
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

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

15.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

16.
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

17.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

18.
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

19.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

20.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

21.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

22.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

23.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

24.
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

25.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

26.
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

27.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

31.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

32.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

33.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

37.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

38.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

39.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

40.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

41.
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

42.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

43.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

44.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

45.
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

46.
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

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

48.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

49.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell
