Children

The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

2.
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

3.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

4.
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

5.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

6.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

7.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

8.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

9.
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

10.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

11.
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

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

14.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

15.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

16.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

17.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

18.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

19.
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

20.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

21.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

22.
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

23.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

25.
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

26.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

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

28.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

29.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

30.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

31.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

32.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

33.
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

34.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

35.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

36.
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

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

38.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

39.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

40.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

41.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

42.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

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

44.
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

45.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

46.
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

47.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

48.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

49.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

50.
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
