Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

3.
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

4.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

5.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

6.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

7.
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

8.
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

9.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

10.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

11.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

12.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

13.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

22.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

23.
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

24.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

25.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

26.
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

27.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

28.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

29.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

30.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

31.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

32.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

33.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

34.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

36.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

37.
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

38.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

39.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

40.
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

41.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

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.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

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.
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

46.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

47.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

48.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

49.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

50.
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
