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

2.
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

3.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

4.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

5.
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

6.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

7.
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

8.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

9.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

10.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

11.
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

12.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

13.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

14.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

15.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

18.
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

19.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

20.
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

21.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

22.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

23.
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

24.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

25.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

26.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

27.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

28.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

29.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

30.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

31.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

32.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

33.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

34.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

35.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

36.
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

37.
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

38.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

42.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

43.
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

44.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

45.
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

46.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

47.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

48.
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

49.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

50.
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
