Motivational Quotes

Children

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.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

3.
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

4.
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

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

6.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

7.
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

8.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

9.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

10.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

11.
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

12.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

13.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

14.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

15.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

16.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

17.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

18.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

19.
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

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

21.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

22.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

23.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

24.
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

25.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

26.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

27.
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

28.
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

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.
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.

31.
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

32.
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

33.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

34.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

35.
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

36.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

37.
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.

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

40.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

45.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

46.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

47.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

48.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

49.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
