Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
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

4.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

5.
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

6.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

7.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

8.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

9.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

10.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

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

18.
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

19.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
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

22.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

23.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

24.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

25.
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

26.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

27.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

28.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

30.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

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.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

33.
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

34.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

35.
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.

36.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

37.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

38.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

39.
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

40.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

41.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

42.
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

43.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

44.
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

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

46.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

47.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

48.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

49.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

50.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies
