Motivational Quotes

Children

Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
- Jordan, June
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

2.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

3.
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

4.
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.

5.
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

6.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

7.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

8.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

9.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

10.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

11.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

16.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

17.
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

18.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

19.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

20.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

21.
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

22.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

23.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

24.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

25.
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

26.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

27.
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

28.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

29.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

30.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

31.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

32.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

37.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

38.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

40.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

41.
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

42.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

43.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

44.
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

45.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

46.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

47.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

48.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

49.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

50.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.
