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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
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

4.
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

5.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

8.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

9.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

10.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

11.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

12.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

13.
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

14.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

15.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

16.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

17.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

18.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

19.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

20.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

21.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

22.
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

23.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

24.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

25.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

26.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

32.
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

33.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

34.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

36.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

40.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

41.
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

42.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

43.
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

44.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

45.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

46.
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

47.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

48.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

49.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques
