Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

2.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

3.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

8.
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.

9.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

10.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

11.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

12.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

13.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

20.
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

21.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

22.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

23.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

24.
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

25.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

26.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

27.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

33.
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

34.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

35.
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

36.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

37.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

38.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

39.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

40.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

41.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

42.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

43.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

44.
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

45.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

46.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

47.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

48.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

49.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

50.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.
