Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

2.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

3.
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

4.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

5.
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

6.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

7.
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

8.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

13.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

14.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

15.
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

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

17.
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

18.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

19.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

20.
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

21.
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

22.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

27.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

28.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

29.
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

30.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

32.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

33.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

34.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

35.
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

36.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

37.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

38.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

39.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

43.
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

44.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

45.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

46.
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

47.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

48.
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

49.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

50.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas
