Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

2.
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

3.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

7.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

10.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

11.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

12.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

13.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

14.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

15.
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

16.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

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.
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

19.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

20.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

21.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

22.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

23.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

24.
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.

25.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

26.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

27.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

28.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

29.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

30.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

31.
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

32.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

36.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

37.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

38.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

39.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

40.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

41.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

42.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

43.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

44.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

45.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

46.
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.

47.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

48.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

49.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

50.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen
