Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
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

7.
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

8.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

9.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

10.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

11.
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

12.
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

13.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

17.
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.

18.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

19.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

20.
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.

21.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

22.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

23.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

24.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

25.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

26.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

27.
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

28.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

29.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

30.
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

31.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

32.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

33.
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

34.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

35.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.

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

37.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

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

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

43.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

44.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

45.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

46.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

47.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le
