Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

3.
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

4.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

5.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

12.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

13.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

14.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

15.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

16.
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

17.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

18.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

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

20.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

21.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

22.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

23.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

24.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

25.
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

26.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

27.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

28.
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

29.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

30.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

31.
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

32.
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

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.
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

35.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

36.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

37.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

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

39.
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

40.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

41.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

42.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

43.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

44.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

47.
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

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

50.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob
