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

2.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

3.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

4.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

5.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

6.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

7.
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

8.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

9.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

10.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

11.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

12.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

13.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

14.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

15.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

16.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

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

22.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

23.
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

24.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

25.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

27.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

28.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

29.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

30.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

31.
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

32.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

33.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

34.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

36.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

37.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

41.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

42.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

43.
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

44.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

45.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

46.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

47.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

50.
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
