Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

2.
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

3.
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

4.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

5.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

6.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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

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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

13.
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

14.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

15.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

16.
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

17.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

18.
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

19.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

22.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

23.
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

24.
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

25.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

26.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

27.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

28.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

29.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

30.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

31.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

32.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

33.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

34.
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

35.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

36.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

37.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

41.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

42.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

43.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

44.
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

45.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

46.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

47.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

48.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

49.
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

50.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta
