Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

2.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

3.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

4.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

5.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

6.
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

7.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

8.
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

9.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

10.
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

11.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

12.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

13.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

14.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

15.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

16.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

17.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

18.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

19.
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

20.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

21.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

22.
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

23.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

24.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

28.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

29.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

30.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

31.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

32.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

33.
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

34.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

35.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

36.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

37.
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

38.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

39.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

40.
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

41.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

46.
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.

47.
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

48.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

49.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

50.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
