Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

2.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
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

4.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

5.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

6.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

7.
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

8.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

9.
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

10.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

11.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

12.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

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

15.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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.

19.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

20.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

21.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

22.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

23.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

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.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

29.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

30.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

31.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

32.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

33.
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

34.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

35.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

36.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

37.
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

38.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

39.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

40.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

46.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

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

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

50.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya
