Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

2.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

3.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

4.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

6.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

7.
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

8.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

9.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

10.
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

11.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

12.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

13.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

14.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

15.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

16.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

17.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

18.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

19.
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

20.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

21.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

22.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

23.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

24.
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

25.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

27.
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

28.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

29.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

30.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

31.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

32.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

33.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

34.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

35.
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

36.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

37.
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

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

41.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

44.
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

45.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

46.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

47.
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

48.
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

49.
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

50.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward
