- Meyer, Adolph
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

2.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

3.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

4.
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

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

7.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

8.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

9.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

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

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.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

14.
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.

15.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

16.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

17.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

18.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

19.
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

20.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

21.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

22.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

23.
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

24.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

25.
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

26.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

28.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

32.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

33.
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

34.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

37.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

38.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

39.
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

40.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

41.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

42.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

43.
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

44.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

45.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

48.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

49.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

50.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
