Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

2.
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

3.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

4.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

8.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

9.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

10.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

11.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

12.
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

13.
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

14.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

15.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

16.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

17.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

18.
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.

19.
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

20.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

21.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

22.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

23.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

24.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

25.
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

26.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

27.
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

28.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

31.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

32.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

33.
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.

34.
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

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

37.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

38.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

39.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

40.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

41.
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

42.
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

43.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

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

48.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

49.
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

50.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John
