Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
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

3.
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

4.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

5.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

6.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

7.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

8.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

9.
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

10.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

11.
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

12.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

13.
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

14.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

15.
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

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

18.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

19.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

20.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

21.
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

22.
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.

23.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

24.
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

25.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

26.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

27.
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

28.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

29.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

30.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

31.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

32.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

33.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

34.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

35.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

36.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

37.
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

38.
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

39.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

40.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

41.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

42.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

43.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

44.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

45.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

46.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

47.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

48.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

49.
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

50.
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
