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.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

2.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

3.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

4.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

5.
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.

6.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

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

8.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

9.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

10.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

11.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

12.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

13.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

14.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

15.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

16.
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

17.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

18.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

19.
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

20.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

21.
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

22.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

23.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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

26.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

27.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

33.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

34.
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

35.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

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

37.
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

38.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

42.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

43.
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

44.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

45.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

46.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
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

49.
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

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