Children

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.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

2.
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

3.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

4.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

5.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

6.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

7.
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

8.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

9.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

10.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

11.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
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

14.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

15.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

16.
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

17.
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

18.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

19.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

20.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

24.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

25.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

26.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

27.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

28.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

29.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

30.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
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.

33.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

34.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

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

36.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

37.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

38.
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

39.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

40.
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

41.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

42.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!

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

48.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

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

50.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil
