- Humphrey, Hubert H.
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

3.
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

4.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

5.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

6.
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

7.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

8.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

9.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

10.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

11.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

13.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

14.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

15.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

16.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

18.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

19.
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

20.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

21.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

22.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

23.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

24.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

25.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

26.
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

27.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

30.
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

31.
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

32.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

36.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

37.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

38.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

40.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

41.
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

42.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

43.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

44.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

45.
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

46.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

47.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

48.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

49.
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

50.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison
