Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

2.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

6.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

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

9.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

10.
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.

11.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

12.
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

13.
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.

14.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

15.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

16.
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

17.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

18.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

19.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

23.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

25.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

26.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

27.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

28.
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

29.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

30.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

31.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

32.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

33.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

34.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

35.
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

36.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

37.
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

38.
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

39.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

40.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

41.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

42.
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

43.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

44.
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

45.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

46.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

48.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

49.
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

50.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.
