Motivational Quotes

Children

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.

Harrison, Jane

8.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.

Wilder, Thornton

15.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

16.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

17.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

18.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

19.

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

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

Ovid

33.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

34.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
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

37.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

38.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
