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

2.
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

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

5.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

6.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

7.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

8.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

9.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

10.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

11.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

12.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

13.
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

14.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

15.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

16.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

17.
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

18.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

19.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

20.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

21.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

22.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

23.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

30.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

31.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

32.
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

33.
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

34.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

37.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

38.
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

39.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
