Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

2.
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

3.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

4.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

5.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

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

7.
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

8.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

10.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

11.
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

12.
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

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

14.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

15.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

16.
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.

17.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

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

19.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

20.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

21.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
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.

26.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

28.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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

30.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
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

35.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

36.
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

37.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

38.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

39.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

40.
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

41.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

42.
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

43.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

44.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

45.
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

46.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

47.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

48.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

49.
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

50.
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
