Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

2.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

3.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

4.
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

5.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

6.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

7.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

8.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

9.
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

10.
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

11.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

12.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

13.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

14.
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

15.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

17.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

19.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

20.
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

21.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

24.
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

25.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

26.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

27.
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

28.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

30.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

31.
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

32.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

33.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

34.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

35.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

36.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

37.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

38.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

39.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

40.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

41.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

42.
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

43.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

44.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

45.
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

46.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

47.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

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

49.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

50.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert
