Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

2.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

3.
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

4.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

5.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

6.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

7.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

8.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

9.
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

10.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

11.
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

12.
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

13.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

14.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

15.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

16.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

17.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

19.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

20.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
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

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
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

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

25.
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

26.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

27.
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

28.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

29.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

30.
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

31.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

32.
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

33.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

34.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

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

36.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

37.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

40.
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

41.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

42.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

43.
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

44.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

45.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

46.
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.

47.
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

48.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

49.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

50.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare
