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.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

5.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

6.
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

7.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

8.
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

9.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

10.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
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

12.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

13.
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

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

16.
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

17.
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

18.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

19.
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

20.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

24.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

25.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

26.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

27.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

28.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
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

31.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

33.
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

34.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

35.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

36.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

37.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

38.
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

39.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

40.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

41.
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

42.
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

43.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

44.
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

45.
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

46.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

47.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

48.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

49.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

50.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
