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.
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

2.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

3.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

4.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
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

6.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

7.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

8.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

12.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

17.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

18.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

19.
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

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

21.
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

22.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

23.
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

24.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

25.
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

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

28.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

30.
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

31.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

33.
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

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

36.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

37.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

38.
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

39.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

40.
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.

41.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

42.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

43.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

44.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

45.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

46.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

47.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

48.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

49.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

50.
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
