Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

2.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

3.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

4.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

5.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

6.
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.

7.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

8.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

9.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

10.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

11.
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

12.
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

13.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

14.
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

15.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

16.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

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

18.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

19.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

20.
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

21.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

22.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

23.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

24.
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

25.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

26.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

27.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

28.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

33.
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

34.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

35.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

36.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

37.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

38.
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

39.

Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

42.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

43.
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

44.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

45.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

46.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

47.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

49.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

50.
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
