Children

People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

2.
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

3.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

4.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

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

6.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

8.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

9.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

10.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

11.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

12.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

13.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

14.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

15.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

16.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

17.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

18.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

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

20.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

21.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

22.
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

23.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

24.
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

25.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

26.
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

27.
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

28.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

29.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

33.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

34.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

35.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

36.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

37.
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

38.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

39.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

40.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

41.
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

42.
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

43.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

44.
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

45.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

46.
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

47.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

48.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

49.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

50.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward
