Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

2.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

4.
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

5.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

6.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

7.
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

8.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

9.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

10.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

11.
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

12.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

13.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

14.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

15.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

16.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

21.
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

22.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

23.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

24.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

25.
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

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

28.
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

29.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

30.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

31.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

32.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

33.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

34.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

35.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

36.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

37.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

38.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

40.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

41.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

42.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

43.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

44.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

45.
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

46.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

47.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
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

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