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

2.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

3.
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

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

5.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

6.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

7.
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

8.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

9.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

10.
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

11.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

12.
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

13.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

14.
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

15.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

16.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

17.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

18.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

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

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

25.
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

26.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

27.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

33.
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

34.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

37.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

38.
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

39.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

40.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

41.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

42.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

43.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

44.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

45.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

46.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

47.
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

48.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

49.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

50.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac
