Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

2.
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

3.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

4.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

5.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

7.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

8.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

13.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

14.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

15.
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

16.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

17.
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

18.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

19.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

22.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

26.
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

27.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

28.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

29.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

30.
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.

31.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

32.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

33.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

34.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

35.
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

36.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

37.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

38.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

39.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

40.
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

41.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

42.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

43.
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.

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

47.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

50.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh
