Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

2.
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

3.
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

4.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

5.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

6.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

7.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

8.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
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

10.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

11.
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

12.
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

13.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

14.
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

15.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

16.
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

17.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

18.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

19.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

20.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

21.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

22.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

23.
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

24.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

25.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

26.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

27.
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

28.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

29.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

30.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

31.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

32.
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

33.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

34.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

35.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

36.
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

37.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

38.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

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.
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

42.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

43.
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

44.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

45.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

46.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

47.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

48.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

49.
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

50.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John
