Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

3.
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

4.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

6.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

7.
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

8.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

9.
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

10.
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

11.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

12.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

13.
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

14.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

16.
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

17.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

18.
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

19.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

20.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

21.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

22.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

25.
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

26.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

27.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

28.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

29.
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

30.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

31.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

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

34.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

35.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

36.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

37.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

38.
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

39.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

40.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

41.
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

42.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

43.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

44.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

45.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

46.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

47.
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.

48.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

49.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

50.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
