Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

2.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

3.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

4.
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

5.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

6.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

7.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

8.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

9.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

10.
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

11.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

12.
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.

13.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

14.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

15.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

16.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

17.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

18.
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

19.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

20.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

21.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

22.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

23.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

24.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

26.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

31.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
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

33.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

34.
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

35.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

41.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

42.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

43.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

44.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

45.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

46.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

47.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

48.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

49.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

50.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
