Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

3.
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

4.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

5.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

7.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

11.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

12.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

13.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

14.
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

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

18.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

19.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

20.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

21.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

22.
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

23.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

24.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

25.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

28.
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

29.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

30.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

31.
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

32.
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

33.
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

34.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

35.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

36.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
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

39.
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

40.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

41.
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

42.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

43.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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

46.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

47.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

48.
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.

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
