- Kraus, Karl
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

2.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

3.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

5.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

6.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

8.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

9.
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

10.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

11.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

15.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

16.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

17.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

18.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

19.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

20.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

21.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

22.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

23.
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

24.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

25.
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

26.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

27.
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

28.
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

29.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

30.
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

31.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

32.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

33.
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

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

35.
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

36.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

40.
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

41.
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

42.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

43.
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

44.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

45.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

46.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

47.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

48.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

49.
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

50.
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.
