Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

2.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

5.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

6.
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

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

10.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

11.
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

12.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

16.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

17.
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

18.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

19.
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

20.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

21.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

22.
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

23.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

24.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

25.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

26.
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

27.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

28.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

29.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
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

31.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.

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.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

43.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

44.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
