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.
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

2.
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

3.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

8.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

14.
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

15.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

16.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

17.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

18.
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

19.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

20.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

21.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

22.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

23.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

24.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

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.
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

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

28.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

29.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

30.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

31.
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

32.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

36.
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

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

39.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

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

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

What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

43.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

44.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

45.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

46.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

47.
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

48.
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

49.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

50.
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
