Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

2.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

3.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

4.
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

5.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

6.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

7.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

8.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

9.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

13.
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

14.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

15.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

16.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

17.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

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

19.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

24.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

25.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

26.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

30.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

31.
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

32.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

33.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

34.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

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

36.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

37.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

38.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

39.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

40.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

41.
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

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

47.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

48.
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

49.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

50.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
