- Fielding, Henry
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

2.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

3.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

7.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

8.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

9.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

10.
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

11.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

12.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

13.
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.

14.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

15.
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.
Greer, Germaine

16.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

17.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

18.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

19.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

20.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

23.
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

24.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

25.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

26.
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

27.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

28.
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

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

30.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

31.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

32.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

33.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

34.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

35.
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

36.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

37.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

38.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

39.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

40.
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

41.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

42.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

43.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

44.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

45.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

46.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

47.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

48.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

49.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

50.
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
