Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

2.
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

3.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

4.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

5.
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

6.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

7.
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

8.
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

9.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

10.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

11.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

16.
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

17.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
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

19.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

22.
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

23.
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

24.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

25.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

26.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

34.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

35.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

36.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

37.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

38.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

39.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

40.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

41.
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

42.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

47.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

48.
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

49.
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.

50.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David
