Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

7.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

8.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

9.
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

10.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

11.
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

12.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

13.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

14.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

15.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

16.
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

17.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

18.
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

19.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

20.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

21.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

22.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

23.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

24.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

25.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

26.
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

27.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

28.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

29.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

30.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

31.
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

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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
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

38.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

39.
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

40.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

41.
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

42.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

43.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

44.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

45.
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

46.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

47.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

48.
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

49.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

50.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker
