Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

2.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

3.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

4.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

5.
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

6.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

7.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

8.
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.

9.
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

10.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

11.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

13.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

14.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

18.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

19.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

20.
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

21.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

22.
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

23.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

24.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

25.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

26.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

27.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

28.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

29.
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

30.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

31.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

32.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

33.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

34.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

35.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
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

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

40.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

41.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

42.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

43.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

44.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

47.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

48.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

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.
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
