Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

2.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

3.
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

4.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

5.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

6.
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

7.
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

8.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

9.
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

10.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

11.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
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

13.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

14.
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

15.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

16.
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

17.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

18.
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

19.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

20.
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

21.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

22.
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

23.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

24.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

25.
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

26.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

27.
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

28.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

29.
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

30.
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

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.
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

33.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

34.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

35.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

36.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

37.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

38.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

39.
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

40.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

41.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

42.
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

43.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

44.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

45.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

46.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

47.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

48.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

49.
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

50.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben
