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

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

4.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

8.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

9.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

10.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

11.
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

12.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

13.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

14.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

15.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

16.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

17.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

18.
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

19.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

20.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

21.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

22.
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

23.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

24.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

25.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

26.
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

27.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

28.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

29.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

30.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

31.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

32.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

33.
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

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

36.
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

37.
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

38.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

39.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

40.
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

41.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

42.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

43.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

44.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

45.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

46.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

47.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

48.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

49.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

50.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston
