Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

2.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

3.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

4.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

9.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

10.
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

11.
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

12.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

13.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

14.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
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

16.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

17.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

18.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

19.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

20.
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.

21.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

22.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

23.
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

24.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

25.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

26.
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

27.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

28.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

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

30.
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

31.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

32.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

33.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

34.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

35.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

36.
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

37.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

38.
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

39.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

40.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

41.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

43.
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

44.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

45.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

46.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

47.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

48.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

49.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

50.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison
