Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

2.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

3.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

4.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

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

6.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

7.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

8.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

9.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

10.
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

11.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

12.
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.

13.
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

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

16.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

17.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

18.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

19.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

22.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

23.
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

24.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

25.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

26.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

27.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

28.
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

29.
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

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.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

32.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

33.
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

34.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

35.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

36.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

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.
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

39.
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

40.
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

41.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

42.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

43.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

49.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

50.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb
