Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

2.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

3.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

4.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

5.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

6.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

7.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

8.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
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

10.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

11.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

12.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

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

15.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

16.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

17.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

18.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

19.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

20.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

21.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

22.
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

23.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

24.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

25.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

26.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

27.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

28.
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

29.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

30.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

31.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

32.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

33.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

34.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

35.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

36.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

37.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

38.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

39.
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

40.
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

41.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

45.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

46.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

47.
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.

48.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

49.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

50.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton
