Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

2.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

3.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

4.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

5.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

6.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

10.
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

11.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

12.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

13.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

14.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

15.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

16.
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

17.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

18.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

19.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

20.
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

21.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

22.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

23.
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

24.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

25.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

26.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

27.
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

28.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

29.
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

30.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

31.
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

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

34.
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

35.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

37.
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

38.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

39.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

40.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

41.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

42.
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

43.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

44.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

45.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

46.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

47.
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

48.
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

49.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

50.
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
