Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

3.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

4.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

5.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

6.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
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

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

11.
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

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

16.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

17.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

18.
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

19.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

20.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

21.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
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

24.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

26.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

27.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

28.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

32.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

35.
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

36.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

37.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

38.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

39.
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

40.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

41.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

42.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

43.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

Proverb, English

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

46.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

47.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

48.
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

49.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

50.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
