Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

3.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

7.
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

8.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

9.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

10.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

11.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

12.
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

13.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

14.
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

15.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

16.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

17.
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

18.
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

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

20.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

21.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

22.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

23.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

24.
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

25.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

26.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

27.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

30.
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

31.
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.

32.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

33.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

34.
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

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

36.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

37.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

38.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

39.
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

40.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

41.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

47.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

48.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

49.
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

50.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton
