Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

2.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

3.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

4.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

5.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

6.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

7.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

8.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

9.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

15.
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

16.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

19.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

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

21.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

22.
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

23.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

24.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

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.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

27.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

34.
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

35.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

39.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

40.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

41.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

43.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

44.
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

45.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

46.
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

47.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

48.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

49.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

50.
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
