Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

3.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

4.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

5.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

6.
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

7.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

11.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

12.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

17.
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

18.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

19.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

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

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

People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.

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

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

29.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

30.
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

31.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

32.
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

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

34.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

35.
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

36.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

37.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

38.
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.

39.
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.

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

45.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

Angelou, Maya

48.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
