Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

2.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

3.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

4.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

5.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

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

7.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

8.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

9.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

10.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

11.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
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

16.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

17.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

18.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

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

20.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

21.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

22.
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

23.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

24.
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

25.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

26.
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

27.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

28.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

29.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

30.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

31.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

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

35.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

41.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

42.
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

43.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

44.
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

45.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

46.
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

47.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

48.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

49.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

50.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.
