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

2.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

3.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

4.
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

5.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

6.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

7.
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

8.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

9.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

10.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

11.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

12.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

13.
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.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

18.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

19.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

20.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

21.
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

22.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

23.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

24.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

26.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

28.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

30.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

31.
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

32.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

33.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

34.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

35.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

40.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

41.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

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

43.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

44.
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

45.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

46.
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

47.
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

48.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

49.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

50.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac
