Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

3.
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

4.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

5.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

6.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

7.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

8.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

9.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

10.
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

11.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

12.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

13.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

14.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

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

17.
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

18.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

19.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

20.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

21.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

22.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

23.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

24.
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

25.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

26.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

28.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

29.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

30.
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

31.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

33.
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

34.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

35.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

36.
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

37.
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.

38.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

39.
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

40.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

41.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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

48.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

49.
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

50.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
