Children

You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

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.
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

6.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

8.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

9.
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

10.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

11.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

12.
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

13.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

14.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

15.
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

16.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

17.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

18.
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

19.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

20.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

21.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

22.
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

23.
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.

24.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

25.
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

26.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

27.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

28.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

29.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

30.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

31.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

32.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

33.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

34.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

35.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

36.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

37.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

38.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

39.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

40.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

41.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

42.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

43.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

47.
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

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

50.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John
