Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

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

2.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

3.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

4.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

8.
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

9.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

10.
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

11.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

12.
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.

13.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

14.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

15.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

16.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

17.
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

18.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

19.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

20.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

21.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

22.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

27.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

28.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

32.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

33.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

34.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

35.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

36.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

37.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

38.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

39.
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.

40.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

41.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

42.
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

43.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

44.
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

45.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

46.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

47.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

48.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

49.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

50.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman
