- Baldwin, James
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

2.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

3.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

4.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

5.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

6.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

7.
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

8.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

9.
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.

10.
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

11.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

12.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

13.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

16.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

17.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

18.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

19.
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

20.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

21.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

22.
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

23.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

24.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

25.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

26.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

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

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

30.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

31.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

32.
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

33.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

34.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

35.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

36.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

37.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

38.
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

39.
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

40.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

44.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

45.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

46.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

47.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

48.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

49.

Dobson, Dr. James C.

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