Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

3.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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

5.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

6.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

7.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

8.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

9.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

10.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

15.
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

16.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

17.
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

18.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

19.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

20.
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

21.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

22.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

23.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

24.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

25.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

26.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

27.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

28.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

29.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

30.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
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.

35.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

36.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

37.
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

38.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

39.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

40.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

41.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

42.
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

43.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

44.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

45.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

46.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

47.
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

48.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

49.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

50.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark
