Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

3.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

4.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

7.
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.

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

12.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

13.
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

14.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

15.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

19.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

20.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

21.
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

22.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

23.
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

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

26.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

27.
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

28.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

29.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

30.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

31.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

32.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

33.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

34.
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

35.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

36.
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

37.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

38.
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

39.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

40.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

41.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

42.
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

43.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

44.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

45.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

46.
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

47.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

48.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

49.
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

50.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz
