Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

2.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

3.
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

4.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

8.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

9.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

10.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

11.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

12.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

14.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

15.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

16.
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

17.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

18.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

19.
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

20.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

21.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

22.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

23.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

24.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

25.
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

26.
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

27.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

28.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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

30.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

31.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

32.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

33.
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

34.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

35.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

36.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

37.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

40.
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

41.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

42.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

43.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

44.
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

45.
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

46.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

47.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

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

49.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

50.
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
