Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

2.
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

3.
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

4.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

5.
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

6.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

7.
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

8.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

9.
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

10.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

11.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

12.
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

13.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

14.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

15.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

19.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

20.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

21.
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

22.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

23.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

24.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

25.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

26.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

27.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

28.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

29.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

30.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

31.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

32.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

33.
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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

38.
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

39.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

40.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

41.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

42.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

43.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

44.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

45.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

50.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy
