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.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

2.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

3.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

5.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

6.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

7.
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

8.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

10.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

11.
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

12.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

13.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

14.
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

15.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

16.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

17.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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

19.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

20.
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

21.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

22.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

23.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

24.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

25.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

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.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

28.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

29.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

30.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

31.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

32.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

33.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

34.
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

35.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

36.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

37.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

38.
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

39.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

44.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

45.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

46.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

47.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

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.
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

50.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin
