Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

2.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

3.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

4.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

5.
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

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

8.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

9.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

10.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

11.
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

12.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

13.
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

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

18.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

19.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

23.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

24.
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

25.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

26.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

27.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

28.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

29.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

30.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

34.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

35.
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

36.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

37.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

38.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

40.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

41.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

42.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

43.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

44.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

45.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

46.
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

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
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

49.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

50.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
