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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

2.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

5.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

6.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

7.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

10.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

11.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

12.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

13.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

14.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

15.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

19.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

20.
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

21.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

24.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

25.
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

26.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

27.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

28.
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

29.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

30.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

35.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

36.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

37.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

38.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

39.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

40.
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

41.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

42.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

43.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

44.
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

45.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

46.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

49.
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

50.
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
