Children

Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
- Moustakas, Clark
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

2.
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

3.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

4.
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.

5.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

6.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

7.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

8.
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

9.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

10.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

11.
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

12.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

13.
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

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

16.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

17.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

18.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

19.
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

20.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

21.
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

22.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

23.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

27.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

28.
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

29.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

30.
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

31.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

32.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

33.
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

34.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

35.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

39.
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

40.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

41.
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

42.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

43.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

47.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

50.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
