Motivational Quotes

Children

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

Ray, John

15.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

17.
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

18.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

19.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

20.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

21.
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.

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

Ehrenreich, Barbara

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

26.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

27.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

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

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

30.
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

31.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

32.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

34.
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

35.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

36.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

37.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.

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

39.
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

40.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

Swift, Jonathan

46.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

47.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

48.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

49.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
