Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

3.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

4.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

5.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

6.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

7.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

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

9.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

10.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

11.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

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

14.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

15.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

16.
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.

17.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

18.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

19.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

24.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

25.
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

26.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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

29.
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

30.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

31.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

32.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

33.
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

34.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

35.
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

36.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

37.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

38.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

39.
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

40.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

41.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

42.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

43.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

44.
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.

45.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

46.
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

47.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

48.
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

49.
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

50.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo
