Our children change us... whether they live or not.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

2.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

3.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

4.
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

5.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

10.
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

11.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

12.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

13.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

14.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

15.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

16.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

17.
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

18.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

19.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

20.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

21.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

22.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

23.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

24.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

25.
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

26.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

27.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

28.
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

29.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

30.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

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

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 are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

35.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

36.
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

37.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

38.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

39.
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

40.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

41.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

42.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

43.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

44.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

45.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

46.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

47.
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

48.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

49.
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

50.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia
