Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

3.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

4.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

5.
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

6.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
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

8.
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

9.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

10.
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

11.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

13.
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

14.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

15.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

16.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

17.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

18.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

19.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

20.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

21.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

22.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

23.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

24.
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

25.
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

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
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

28.
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

29.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

30.
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

31.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

35.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

36.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

37.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

41.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

42.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

43.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

44.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

45.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

46.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

47.
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

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

50.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John
