Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

2.
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

3.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

4.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

5.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

6.
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

7.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

8.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

9.
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

10.
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

11.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

12.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

13.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

14.
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

15.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

16.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

17.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

18.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

19.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

20.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

21.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

22.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

23.
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

24.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
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

26.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

27.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

28.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

29.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

30.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

31.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
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

33.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

34.
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

35.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

36.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

37.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

38.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

39.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.

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

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.

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