Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

3.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

4.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

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

6.
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

7.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

8.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

9.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

10.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

11.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

12.
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

13.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

14.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

15.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
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

18.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

19.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

20.
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

21.
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

22.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

23.
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.

24.
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

25.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

26.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

27.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

28.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

29.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

30.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

31.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

32.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

33.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

34.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

35.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

36.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

37.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

38.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

39.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

40.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

41.
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

42.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

43.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

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

45.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

46.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

47.
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

48.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

49.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

50.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn
