Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

3.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

4.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

5.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

6.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

8.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

9.
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

10.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

11.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

12.
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

13.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

14.
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

15.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

16.
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

17.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

18.
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

19.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

20.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

21.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

22.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

23.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

24.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

29.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

30.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

31.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

32.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

33.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

37.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

38.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

39.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

40.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

41.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

42.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

43.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

44.
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

Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

47.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

48.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

49.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

50.
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
