- Dogen
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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.

2.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

3.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

4.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

5.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

6.
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

7.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

8.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

9.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

10.
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

11.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
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

14.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

15.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

16.
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

17.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

18.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

19.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

20.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

21.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

28.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

30.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

31.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

32.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

34.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

35.
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

36.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

37.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

38.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

39.
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

40.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

41.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

42.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

43.
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.

44.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna
