Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

2.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

3.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

4.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

5.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

6.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

7.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

8.
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

9.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

10.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

11.
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

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

13.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

14.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

15.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

16.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

17.
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

18.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

19.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

20.
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

21.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

27.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

28.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

29.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

30.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

31.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

32.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

34.
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

35.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

36.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

37.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

38.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

39.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

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

41.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

43.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

44.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

45.
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

46.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne
