Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

2.
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.

3.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

4.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

5.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

10.
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

11.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

12.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

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

14.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

15.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

16.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

17.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

18.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

19.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

21.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

23.
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

24.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

25.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

26.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

27.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

28.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

29.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

30.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

31.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

32.
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

33.
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

34.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

37.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

38.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

39.
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

40.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

41.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

42.
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

43.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

44.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

45.
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

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

50.
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
