Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

2.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

3.
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

4.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

5.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

6.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

7.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

8.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

9.
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

10.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

11.
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

12.
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

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

15.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

16.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

18.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

19.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

20.
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

21.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

22.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

23.
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

24.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

25.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

26.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

27.
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

28.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

29.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

30.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

31.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

32.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

33.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

34.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

35.
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

36.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

37.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

38.
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

39.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

40.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

41.
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

42.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

43.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

44.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

45.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

49.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

50.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne
