- Wiesel, Elie
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

3.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

4.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

6.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

7.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

8.
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

9.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

10.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

11.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

12.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

13.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

14.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

15.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

16.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

17.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

18.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

19.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

24.
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

25.
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

26.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

27.
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

28.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

29.
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

30.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

31.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

32.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

33.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

34.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

35.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

36.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

37.
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

38.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

39.
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

40.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

41.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

42.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

43.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

44.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

45.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

46.
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

47.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

48.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

49.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

50.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph
