Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

2.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

3.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

4.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

5.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

7.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

8.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

9.
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

10.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

11.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

12.
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

13.
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

14.
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.

15.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

16.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

17.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

18.
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

19.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

21.
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

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

24.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

25.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

26.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

27.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

28.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

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.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

31.
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

32.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

33.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

34.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

35.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

36.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

37.
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

38.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

39.
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

40.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

41.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

42.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
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

44.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

45.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

46.
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

47.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

49.
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

50.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal
