Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

2.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

3.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

4.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

5.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

6.
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

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

8.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

9.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

13.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

14.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

22.
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

23.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

26.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

27.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

28.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

29.
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

30.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

31.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

32.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

33.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

34.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

35.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

36.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

37.
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

38.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

39.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

40.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

41.
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

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

44.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

45.
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

46.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

47.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

48.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

49.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

50.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible
