Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

2.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

3.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

4.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

5.
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

6.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

7.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

8.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

9.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

10.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

11.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

15.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

20.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

21.
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.

22.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

23.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

24.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

25.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

26.
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

27.
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

28.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

29.
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

30.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

31.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

32.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

33.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

34.
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

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

37.
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

38.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

39.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

40.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

41.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

42.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

43.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

45.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

46.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

50.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne
