Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

3.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

7.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

9.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

10.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

11.
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

12.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

13.
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

14.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

15.
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

16.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

17.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

18.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

19.
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

20.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

21.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

22.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

23.
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

24.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

25.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

26.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

27.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

28.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

29.
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

30.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

34.
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

35.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

36.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

37.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

38.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

39.
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

40.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

41.
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.

42.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

43.
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

44.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

45.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

46.
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

47.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

48.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

49.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

50.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry
