Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

2.
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

3.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

4.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

5.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

6.
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

7.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

8.
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

9.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

10.
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

11.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

12.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

17.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

18.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

19.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

20.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

22.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

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

30.
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

31.
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

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
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

34.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

35.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

36.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

37.
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

38.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

39.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

40.
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

41.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

45.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

46.
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

47.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

48.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

49.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

50.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore
