Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

2.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

3.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

4.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

6.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

7.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

8.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

9.
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.

10.
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.

11.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

12.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

13.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

14.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

18.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

19.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

20.
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

21.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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

29.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

30.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

31.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

32.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

33.
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.

34.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

35.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

36.
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

37.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

38.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

39.
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

40.
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

41.
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

42.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

43.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

44.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

45.
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

46.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

47.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

50.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell
