Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.

2.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

5.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

6.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

16.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

17.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

18.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

19.
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

20.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

21.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

22.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

23.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

24.
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

25.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

26.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

27.
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

28.
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

29.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

30.
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

31.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

32.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

33.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

34.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

35.
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

36.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

37.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

38.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

39.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

40.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

41.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

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

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

45.
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

46.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

47.
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

48.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

49.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

50.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
