Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

3.
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

4.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

5.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

6.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

7.
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.

8.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

9.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

10.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

11.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

12.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

13.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

14.
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

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

16.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

17.
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

18.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

19.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

20.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

21.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

22.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

23.
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

24.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

25.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

26.
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

27.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

28.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

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

30.
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

31.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

32.
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

33.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

34.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

35.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

36.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

37.
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

38.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

39.
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.

40.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

44.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

45.
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

46.
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

47.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

48.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

49.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

50.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII
