Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

2.
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

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

4.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

5.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

6.
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

7.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

8.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

9.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

10.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

11.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

12.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

17.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

18.
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

19.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

20.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

21.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

22.
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

23.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

24.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

25.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

26.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

27.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

28.
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

29.
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

30.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

33.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

34.
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

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.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

37.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

38.
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

39.
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

40.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

44.
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

45.
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.

46.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

47.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

48.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

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

50.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June
