Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

5.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

6.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

7.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

8.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

9.
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

10.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

11.
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

12.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

13.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

14.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

15.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

16.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

17.
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

18.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

19.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

20.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

23.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

24.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

25.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

31.
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

32.
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

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

35.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

36.
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

37.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

38.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

39.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

40.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

41.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

42.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

43.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

44.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

50.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
