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

2.
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

3.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

4.
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

5.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

6.
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

7.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

8.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

9.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

10.
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

11.
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

12.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

13.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

14.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

15.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

16.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

17.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
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

19.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

20.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

21.
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

22.
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

23.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

24.
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

25.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

26.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

27.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

28.
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

29.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

30.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

31.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

33.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

34.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

35.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

36.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

37.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

38.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

39.
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

40.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

41.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

44.
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

45.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

46.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

47.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

48.
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

49.
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

50.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
