Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

2.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

3.
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

4.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

5.
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.

6.
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.

7.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

8.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

9.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

10.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

14.
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

15.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

16.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

17.
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

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

20.
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

21.
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

22.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

23.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

24.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

25.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

26.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

27.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

28.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

29.
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

30.
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

31.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

37.
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

38.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

40.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

41.
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.

42.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

43.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

45.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

46.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

47.
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

48.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

49.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

50.
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
