Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

3.
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

4.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

5.
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

6.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

7.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

8.
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

9.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

10.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

11.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

12.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

13.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

14.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

15.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

16.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

17.
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

18.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

19.
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

20.
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

21.
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

22.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

23.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

24.
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

25.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

26.
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.

27.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

28.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

33.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

34.
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

35.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

36.
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

37.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

38.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

39.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

42.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

43.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

44.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

45.
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

46.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

47.
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

48.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

50.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson
