Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

4.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

5.
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

6.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

7.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

8.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

9.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

10.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

11.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

12.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

13.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

14.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

15.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

16.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

17.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

18.
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

19.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

20.
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

21.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

22.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

23.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

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

26.
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

27.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

28.
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

29.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

30.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

32.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

33.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

34.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

35.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

36.
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.

37.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

38.
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

39.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

40.
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.

41.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

42.
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

43.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

44.
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

45.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

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

48.
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

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

50.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph
