Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

5.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

6.
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.

7.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

8.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

9.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

10.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

11.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

12.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

13.
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

14.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

15.
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

16.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

17.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

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

19.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

20.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

21.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

22.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

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

27.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

28.
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

29.
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

30.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

31.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

32.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

33.
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

34.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

35.
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

36.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

37.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

38.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

39.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

40.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

41.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

44.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

45.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

46.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

49.
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

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
