Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

2.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

3.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

4.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

5.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

6.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

7.
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

8.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

9.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

10.
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

11.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

12.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

13.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

14.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

15.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

18.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

19.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

20.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

21.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
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

23.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

24.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

25.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

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.
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

28.
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

29.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

30.
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

31.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

32.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

33.
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.

34.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

35.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

36.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

37.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

38.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

39.
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

40.
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.

41.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

42.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

43.
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

44.
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

45.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

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

47.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

48.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

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

50.
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
