Children

For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
- Cottle, Thomas J.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

2.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

3.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

4.
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

5.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

8.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

9.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

10.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

14.
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.

15.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

16.
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

17.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

18.
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

19.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

20.
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

21.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

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

24.
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

25.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

26.
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

27.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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

29.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

33.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

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

35.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

36.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

37.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

38.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

39.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

40.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

41.
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

42.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

43.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

44.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

47.
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

48.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

49.
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

50.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
