Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

4.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

5.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

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

7.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

8.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

9.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

10.
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

11.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

12.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

13.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

14.
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

15.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

16.
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

17.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

18.
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.

19.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

20.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

21.
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

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

24.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

25.
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

26.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

27.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

28.
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

29.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

30.
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.

31.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

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

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

36.
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

37.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

38.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

39.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

40.
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

41.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

42.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

43.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

44.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

45.
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

46.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

47.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

48.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

49.
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

50.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx
