But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
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.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

3.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

4.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

5.
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

6.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

7.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

8.
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.

9.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

10.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

11.
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

12.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

13.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

14.
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

15.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

17.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

22.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

23.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

25.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

26.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

27.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
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

30.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

31.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

32.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

33.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

34.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

35.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

39.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

40.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

41.
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.

42.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

43.
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

44.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

45.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

46.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

47.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

48.
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

49.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

50.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
