Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

2.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

3.
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

4.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

5.
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

6.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

7.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

8.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

9.
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

10.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

11.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

12.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

13.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

14.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

15.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

16.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

21.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

22.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

23.
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

24.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

25.
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

26.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

27.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

28.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

31.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

32.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

33.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

34.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

35.
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.

36.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

37.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

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.

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

40.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

41.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

45.
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

46.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

47.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

48.
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

49.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

50.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English
