Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

3.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

4.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

5.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

6.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

7.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

8.
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

9.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

10.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

11.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

12.
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

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

17.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

27.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

28.
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.

29.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

30.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

43.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

44.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

45.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

46.
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

47.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

48.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

49.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

50.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John
