Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

2.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

3.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

4.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

5.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

6.
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

7.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

8.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

9.
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

10.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

11.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

12.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

13.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

14.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

15.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

16.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

17.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

18.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

19.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

24.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

25.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

26.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

27.
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

28.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

29.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

30.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

31.
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

32.
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

33.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

34.
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

35.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

36.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

37.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

38.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

39.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

40.
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

41.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

42.
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

43.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

44.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

45.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

46.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

47.
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.

48.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

49.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

50.
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
