Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.

2.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

3.
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

4.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

5.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

6.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

7.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

9.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

10.
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

11.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

14.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

15.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

19.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

20.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

21.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

22.
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

23.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

24.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

25.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

26.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

27.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

28.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

29.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

30.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

32.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

34.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

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

36.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

37.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

38.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

39.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

40.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

41.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

42.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

43.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

44.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

45.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.

Spolin, Viola

50.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund
