Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

7.
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

8.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

9.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

10.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

11.
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

12.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

13.
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

14.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

15.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

16.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

17.
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

18.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

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

20.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

21.
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

22.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

23.
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

24.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

25.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

26.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

27.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

28.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

31.
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

32.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

33.
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

34.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

35.
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

36.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

37.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

38.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

39.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

40.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

41.
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

42.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

43.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

44.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

45.
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

46.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

47.
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.

48.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb
