Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

2.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

3.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

4.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

5.
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

6.
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

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

8.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

9.
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

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

12.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

13.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

14.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

15.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

16.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

17.
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

18.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

19.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

20.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

22.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

23.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

28.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

29.
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

30.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

35.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

36.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

37.
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

38.
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

39.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

40.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

41.
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

42.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

43.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

44.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

45.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

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

47.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

48.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

49.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

50.
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
