Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

2.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

3.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

4.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

9.
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

10.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

11.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

12.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

13.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

14.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

15.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

16.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

17.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

18.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

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

25.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

26.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

27.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

28.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

29.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

30.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

31.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

32.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

33.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

34.
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

35.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

38.
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

39.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

40.
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

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

42.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

43.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

44.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

49.
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

50.
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
