Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
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.

6.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

7.
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

8.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

9.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

10.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

11.
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

12.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

13.
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

14.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

15.
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

16.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

17.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

18.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

19.
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

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

22.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

23.
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

24.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

25.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

26.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

27.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

28.
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

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

30.
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

31.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

32.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

33.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

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

35.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

36.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

37.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

38.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

39.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

40.
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

41.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

42.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

43.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

44.
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

45.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

46.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

47.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

48.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

49.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

50.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander
