Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

2.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

3.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

4.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

5.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

6.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

7.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

8.
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

9.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

10.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

11.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

12.
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

13.
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

14.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

19.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

20.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

21.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

22.
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.

23.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

24.
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

25.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

26.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

28.
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

29.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

30.
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

31.
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

32.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

35.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

36.
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

37.
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

38.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

39.
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

40.
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

41.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

43.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
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.

48.
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

49.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

50.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl
