Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

3.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

4.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

5.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

11.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

12.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

13.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

14.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

15.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

16.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

17.
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

18.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

19.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

20.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

21.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

22.
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.

23.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

24.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

25.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
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.

28.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

29.
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

30.
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

31.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

32.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

33.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

34.
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.

35.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

36.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

37.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

38.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

39.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

40.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

41.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

42.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

43.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

44.
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

45.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

46.
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

47.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

48.
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

49.
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

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
