Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

2.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

5.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

6.
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

7.
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

8.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

9.
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

10.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

11.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

12.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

13.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
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

15.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

16.
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

17.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

18.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

19.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

21.
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

22.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

23.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

24.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

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.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

27.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

28.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

32.
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

33.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

34.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

35.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

36.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

37.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

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

40.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

41.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

42.
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

43.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

45.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

49.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

50.
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
