Children

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
- Vaughan, Bill
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

3.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

4.
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

5.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

6.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

7.
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

8.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

9.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

10.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

11.
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

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
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

14.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

15.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

16.
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

17.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

18.
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

19.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

20.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

23.
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

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

26.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

27.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

28.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

29.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

30.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.

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

33.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

36.
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

37.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

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

39.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

40.
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.

Dobson, Dr. James C.

43.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

45.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

46.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

47.
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

48.
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

49.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

50.
