Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

4.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

5.
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

6.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

7.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

8.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

9.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

10.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

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

12.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

13.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

16.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

17.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

18.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

19.
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

20.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
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

22.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

23.
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

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

26.
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

27.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

28.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

29.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

30.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

32.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

33.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

34.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
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

37.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

38.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

39.
Children need models rather than critics.

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

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

42.
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

43.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

44.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

45.
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

46.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

47.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
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

50.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine
