Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

3.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

4.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

5.
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

6.
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.

7.
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

8.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

9.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

10.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

11.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

12.
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

13.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

14.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

15.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

16.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

17.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

18.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

19.
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

20.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

21.
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

22.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

23.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

24.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

25.
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

26.
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

27.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

28.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

29.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

30.
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

31.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

32.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

33.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

34.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

35.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

36.
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

37.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

38.
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

39.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

40.
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

41.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

42.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

43.
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

44.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

45.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

46.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

47.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

48.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

49.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

50.
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
