Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
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

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.
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

5.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

8.
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

9.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

10.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

11.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

12.
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

13.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

14.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

15.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

16.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

17.
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

18.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

19.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

22.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

23.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

24.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

25.
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

26.
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

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

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
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

30.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

31.
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

32.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

34.
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.

35.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

36.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

39.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

40.
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

41.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

42.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

43.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

44.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

45.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

50.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
