Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

2.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

3.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

4.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

5.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

6.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

7.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

8.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

9.
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

10.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

11.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

12.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

13.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

14.
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

15.
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

16.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

17.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

18.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

19.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

20.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

21.
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

22.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

23.
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

24.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

25.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

27.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

28.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

29.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

30.
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

31.
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

32.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

33.
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

34.
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

35.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

36.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

37.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

38.
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

39.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

40.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

41.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

42.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

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

44.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

45.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

46.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

47.
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

48.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

49.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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
