Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

3.
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.

4.
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

5.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

6.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

7.
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

8.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

9.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

10.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

11.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

12.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

13.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

14.
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

15.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

16.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

17.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

18.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

22.
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

23.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

24.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

25.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

26.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

27.
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

28.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

29.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

30.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
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

32.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

33.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

34.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

35.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

36.
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

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

42.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

43.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

44.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

45.
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

46.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

47.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

48.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

49.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

50.
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
