Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

2.
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

3.
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

4.
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

5.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

6.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

7.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

8.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

9.
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

10.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

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

12.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

13.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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.
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

16.
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

17.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

18.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

22.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

23.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

24.
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

25.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

26.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

27.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

28.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

29.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

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.
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

32.
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

33.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

34.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

35.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

36.
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

37.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

38.
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

39.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

40.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

41.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

42.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

43.
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

44.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

45.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

46.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

47.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

48.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

49.
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.

50.
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
