Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

5.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

6.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

7.
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

8.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

12.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

13.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

14.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

15.
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

16.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

17.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

18.
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.

19.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

20.
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

21.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

22.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

23.
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

24.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

25.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

26.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

27.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

28.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

29.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

30.
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

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

33.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

34.
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

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

37.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

38.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

39.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

44.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

45.
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

46.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

47.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
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

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
