Children

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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

3.
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

4.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
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

6.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

10.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

11.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

12.
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

13.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

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

15.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

16.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

17.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

18.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

19.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

20.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

21.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

22.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

23.
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

24.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

28.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

29.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

30.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

31.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

36.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

37.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

38.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

39.
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

40.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

41.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

42.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

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

44.
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

45.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

46.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

47.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

48.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

49.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

50.
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
