Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

5.
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

6.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

7.
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

8.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

9.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

10.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

11.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

12.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

13.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

14.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

15.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

16.
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

17.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

18.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

19.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

20.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

21.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

22.
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

23.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

24.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

25.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

26.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

27.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

28.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

29.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

33.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

34.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

35.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

40.
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

41.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

42.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

43.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

44.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

45.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

49.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

50.
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
