Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

2.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

3.
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

4.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

5.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

6.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

7.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

11.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

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

13.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

14.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

15.
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

16.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

17.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

18.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

19.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

20.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

21.
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

22.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

23.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

24.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

25.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

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

27.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

28.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

29.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

30.
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

31.
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

32.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

33.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

34.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

35.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

36.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

37.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

38.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

39.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

40.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

41.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

42.
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

43.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

44.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

45.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

46.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

47.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

49.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

50.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George
