Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

3.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

4.
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

5.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

6.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

7.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

8.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

9.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

10.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

19.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

20.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

21.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

22.
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.

23.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

24.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

25.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

26.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

27.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

28.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

32.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

33.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

34.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

35.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

36.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

37.
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

38.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

39.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

40.
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

41.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

42.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

43.
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

44.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

45.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

46.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

47.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

48.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

49.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

50.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare
