Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

2.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

3.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

7.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

8.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

9.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

10.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

11.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

12.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

13.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

14.
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

15.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

16.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

18.
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

19.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

20.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

21.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

24.
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

25.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

26.
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

27.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

28.
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

29.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

30.
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

31.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

32.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

33.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
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

37.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

40.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

41.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

42.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

43.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

44.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

45.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

46.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

47.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

48.
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

49.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

50.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger
