Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

3.
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

4.
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

5.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

6.
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

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

8.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

9.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

10.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

11.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

12.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

13.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

14.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

15.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

16.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

17.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

18.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

19.
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

20.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

21.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

22.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

23.
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

24.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

25.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

26.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

27.
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

28.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

29.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

30.
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

31.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

32.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

33.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

34.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

35.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

36.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

37.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

38.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

39.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

44.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

45.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

46.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

47.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

48.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

49.
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

50.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John
