Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

2.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

3.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

4.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

5.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

6.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

8.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

9.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

10.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

11.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

12.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

14.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

18.
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

19.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

20.
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.

21.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

22.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

23.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

24.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

25.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

26.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

27.
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

28.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

29.
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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

38.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

39.
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

40.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

41.
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

42.
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

43.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

44.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

45.
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

46.
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

47.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

48.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

49.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

50.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English
