Children

A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
- Kraus, Karl
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

3.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

4.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

5.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

6.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

7.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

8.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

9.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

10.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

11.
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

12.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

13.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

14.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

15.
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

16.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

17.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

18.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

19.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

20.
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

21.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

22.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

23.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

24.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

25.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

26.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

30.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

31.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

32.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

33.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

34.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

35.
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

36.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

37.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

38.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

39.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

40.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

41.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

42.
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

43.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

44.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

45.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

46.
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

47.
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

48.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher
