Motivational Quotes

Children

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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

2.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

3.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

7.
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

8.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

9.
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

10.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

11.
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

12.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

13.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

14.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

15.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

16.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

17.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

18.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

19.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

20.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

21.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

22.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

23.
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

24.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

25.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

26.
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

27.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

28.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

29.
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

30.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

31.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

32.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

33.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

34.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
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

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

38.
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

39.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

40.
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

41.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

42.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

43.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

47.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold
