Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

2.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

3.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

4.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

11.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

12.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

13.
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

14.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

18.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

19.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

21.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

22.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

23.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

24.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

25.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

26.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

30.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

31.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

32.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

33.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

34.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

35.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

36.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

37.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

38.
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

39.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

40.
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

41.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

42.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

43.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

44.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

45.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

46.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

47.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

48.
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

49.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

50.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston
