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

Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

2.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

3.

Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

Proverb, English

Emerson, Ralph Waldo

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

7.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

8.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

13.
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

14.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

15.
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

16.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

17.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
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

19.
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

20.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

21.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

22.
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

23.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

24.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

Ray, John

Whitehorn, Katharine

31.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

32.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

33.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

34.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

35.
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

36.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.

Bradshaw, John

45.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

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

Fyfe, David
