Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

2.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

3.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

5.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

6.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

7.
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.

8.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

9.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

10.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

11.
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

12.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

13.
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

14.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

15.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

16.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

17.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

18.
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

19.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

20.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

21.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

22.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

23.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

28.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

29.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

30.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

31.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

32.
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

33.
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

34.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

35.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

37.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

38.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

39.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

40.
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

41.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

42.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

46.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

47.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

48.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

49.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

50.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
