Children

When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
- Fielding, Henry
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

3.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

4.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

9.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

10.
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

11.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

12.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

13.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

14.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

15.
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

16.
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

17.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

23.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

24.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

25.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

26.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

27.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

28.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

29.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

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

31.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

32.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

33.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

34.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

39.
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

40.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

41.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

42.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

43.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

44.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

45.
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

46.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

47.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

48.
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

49.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

50.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James
