Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

2.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

3.
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

4.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

5.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

6.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

7.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

8.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

10.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

11.
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

12.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

13.
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

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

18.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

19.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

22.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

23.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

24.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

25.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

26.
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

27.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

28.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

32.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

33.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

36.
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

37.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

38.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

39.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

40.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

44.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

45.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

46.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

47.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
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

50.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John
