- Kraus, Karl
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

3.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

4.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

8.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

10.
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

11.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

12.
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

13.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

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

15.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

18.
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

19.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

20.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

21.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

22.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

23.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

24.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

25.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

28.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

29.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

30.
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

31.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

32.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

33.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

34.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

35.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

36.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

37.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

38.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

43.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

44.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

45.
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

46.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

47.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

48.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

49.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

50.
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
