Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

3.
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

4.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

5.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

6.
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

7.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

8.
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

9.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

10.
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.

11.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

12.
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

13.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

21.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

22.
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

23.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

24.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

25.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

26.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

27.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

28.
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

29.
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

30.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

31.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

32.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

33.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

34.
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

35.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

36.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

41.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

42.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

43.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

44.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

45.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

46.
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

47.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

50.
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
