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.
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

2.
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

3.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

4.
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

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

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.
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

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
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

10.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

11.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

12.
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

13.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

14.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

15.
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

16.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

17.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

18.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

19.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

20.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

21.
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

22.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

23.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

24.
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

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

26.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

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

28.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

33.
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

34.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

35.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

36.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

37.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

38.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

43.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

44.
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

45.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

46.
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

47.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

48.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

49.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

50.
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
