Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
- Holmes, Oliver Wendell
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

2.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

3.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

4.
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

5.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

6.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

7.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

9.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

10.
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

11.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

12.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

13.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

14.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

15.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

16.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

17.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

18.
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

19.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

20.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

21.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

22.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

23.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
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

25.
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

26.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

27.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

28.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

29.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

30.
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

31.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

32.
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

33.
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

34.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

35.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

36.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

37.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

38.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

39.
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.

40.
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

41.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

42.
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

43.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

44.
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

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

46.
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

47.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

48.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

49.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

50.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker
