Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

2.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

6.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

7.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

8.
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

9.
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

10.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

11.
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

12.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

13.
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

14.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

15.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

19.
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

20.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

21.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

22.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

23.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

24.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

25.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

26.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

27.
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.

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

30.
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

31.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

32.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

35.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

36.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

37.
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

38.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

39.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

40.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

41.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

42.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

43.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
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

45.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

46.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

47.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

48.
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

49.
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

50.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson
