Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

2.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

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

Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

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

Seuss, Dr.

14.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

15.
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.

16.
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

17.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

18.
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

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

20.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

21.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

22.
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

23.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

24.
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

25.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

28.
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

29.
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

30.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

31.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

32.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

36.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

41.
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

42.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

43.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

44.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

46.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

47.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

48.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

49.
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

50.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.
