Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

7.
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

8.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

9.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

10.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

11.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

12.
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

13.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

14.
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

15.
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

16.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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

18.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

19.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

21.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

22.
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

23.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

24.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

25.
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

26.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

27.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

28.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

29.
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

30.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

31.
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

32.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

33.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

34.
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

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

37.
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.

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

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

41.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

42.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

43.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

44.

Peter Ustinov

45.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

47.
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

48.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

49.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

50.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund
