Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

2.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

3.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

4.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

5.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

6.
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

7.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

8.
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

9.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

10.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

11.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

12.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

13.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

15.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

16.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
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

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
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

20.
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

21.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

22.
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

23.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

24.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

25.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

26.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

27.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

30.
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

31.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

32.
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.

33.
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

34.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

35.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

36.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

37.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

38.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

42.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

43.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

44.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

45.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

46.
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

47.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

48.
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

49.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

50.
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
