Children

When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
- Lamb, Charles
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

2.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

3.
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

4.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

8.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

9.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

10.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

11.
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

12.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

13.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

14.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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.

21.
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

22.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

23.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

24.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

25.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

26.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

28.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

29.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

30.
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

31.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

32.
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

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

34.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

35.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

36.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

37.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

38.
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

39.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

40.
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

41.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

42.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

43.
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

44.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

49.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

50.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid
