Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

2.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

3.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

4.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

5.
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

6.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

11.
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

12.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

13.
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

14.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

15.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

16.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

17.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

18.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

22.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

23.
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

24.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

26.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

27.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

28.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

29.
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

30.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

31.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

32.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

33.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

34.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

35.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

36.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

37.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

38.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

39.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

43.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

44.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

45.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

46.
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

47.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

48.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

49.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

50.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.
