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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

2.
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

3.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

4.
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

5.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

6.
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

7.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

8.
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

9.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

10.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

15.
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

16.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

17.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

18.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

19.
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.

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

22.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

23.
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

24.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

25.
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

26.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

29.
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

30.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

31.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

32.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

33.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

34.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

35.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

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

37.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

38.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

39.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

40.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

41.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

42.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

43.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

44.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

48.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

49.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

50.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben
