Motivational Quotes

Children

For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
- Roosevelt, Theodore
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

2.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

3.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

8.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

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.
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.

11.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

12.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

13.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

14.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

15.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

18.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

19.
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

20.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

21.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

22.
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

23.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

24.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

25.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

26.
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

27.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

28.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

29.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

30.
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

31.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

32.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

33.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

34.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

35.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

36.
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

37.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

38.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

39.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

40.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz
