Children

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
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.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

3.
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

4.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

5.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

9.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

10.
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

11.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

12.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

13.
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

14.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

15.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

16.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

17.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

18.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

19.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

20.
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

21.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

22.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

25.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

26.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

27.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

28.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

29.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

30.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

34.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

35.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

36.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

37.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

38.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

39.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

40.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

41.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

42.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

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

44.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

45.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

46.
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

47.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

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

49.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

50.
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
