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.
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

2.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

3.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

4.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

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.
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

7.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

8.
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

9.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

10.
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

11.
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

12.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

13.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

14.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

15.
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

16.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

17.
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

18.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

19.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

20.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

21.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

22.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

23.
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

24.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

25.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

28.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

29.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

30.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

31.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

32.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

33.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

34.
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.

35.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

36.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

37.
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

38.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

39.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

40.
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

41.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

42.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

43.
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

44.
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

45.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

46.

47.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

48.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

49.
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

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
