Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

3.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

4.
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

5.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

6.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

7.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

8.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

9.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

10.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

11.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

12.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

13.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

16.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

17.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

18.
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

19.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

20.
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

21.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

25.
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

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

28.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

29.
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

30.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

36.
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

37.
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

38.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

39.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

40.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

41.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

42.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

43.
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

44.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

45.
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.

46.
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

47.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

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

50.
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
