Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

2.
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

3.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

4.
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

5.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

6.
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

7.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

8.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

9.
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.

10.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

11.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

12.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

13.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

14.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

15.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

16.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

17.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

18.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

19.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

20.
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

21.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

22.
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

23.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

27.
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

28.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

29.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

30.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

31.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

32.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

33.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

35.
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

36.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

37.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

38.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

39.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

40.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

41.
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

42.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

43.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

44.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

45.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

46.
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

47.
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

48.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

50.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge
