Children

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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

5.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

6.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

7.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

8.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

9.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

10.
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

11.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

14.
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

15.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

16.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

17.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

18.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

19.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

20.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

21.
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

22.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

23.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

24.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

25.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

26.
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

27.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

28.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

29.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

30.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

31.
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

32.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

33.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

34.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

35.
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

36.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

40.
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

41.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

42.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

43.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

44.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

45.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

46.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

47.
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

48.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

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

50.
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.
