Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

5.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

6.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

7.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

8.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

9.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

10.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

14.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

15.
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

16.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

17.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

18.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

19.
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

20.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

22.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

23.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

24.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

25.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

26.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
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

28.
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

29.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

30.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

31.
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

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

34.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

35.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

36.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

37.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

38.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

42.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

43.
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

44.
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

45.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

46.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

47.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

48.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

49.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

50.
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
