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

2.
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

3.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

4.
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

5.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

11.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

12.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

13.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

14.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

18.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

19.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

20.
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

21.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

22.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

23.
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

24.
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

25.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

26.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

27.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

28.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

29.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

30.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

31.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

32.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

33.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

34.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

35.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

36.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

37.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

38.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

39.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

40.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

41.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

44.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

45.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

46.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

47.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

48.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

49.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.
