Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

3.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

4.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

5.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

6.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

7.
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

8.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

9.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

10.
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

11.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

12.
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

13.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

16.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

17.
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

18.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

19.
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

20.
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

21.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

22.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

23.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

24.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

25.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

26.
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

27.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

28.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

29.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

30.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

31.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

32.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

33.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

34.
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

35.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
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

38.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

39.
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

40.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

41.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

44.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

45.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

46.
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

47.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

48.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

49.
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

50.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas
