Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

3.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

4.
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.

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

6.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

7.
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

8.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

9.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

12.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

13.
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

14.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

15.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

16.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

17.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

18.
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

19.
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

20.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

21.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

22.
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

23.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

24.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

25.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

26.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

27.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

29.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

30.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

31.
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

32.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

33.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

34.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

35.
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

36.
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

37.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

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

39.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

40.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

41.
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

42.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

43.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

44.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
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

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.
