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

2.
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

A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

Jones, Franklin P.

Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

10.
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

11.
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

12.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

16.
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

17.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

18.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

19.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

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

Ray, John

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

Moses, Robert

It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

31.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

35.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

36.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.

40.
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

Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

49.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore
