Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

2.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

3.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

4.
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

5.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

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

7.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

8.
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

9.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

10.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

11.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

14.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

15.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

16.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

17.
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

18.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

19.
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

20.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

21.
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

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

24.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

25.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

26.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

27.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

28.
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

29.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

30.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

31.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

32.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

33.
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

34.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

35.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

36.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

37.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

38.
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

39.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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

41.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

42.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

43.
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

44.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

45.
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

46.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

47.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

48.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

49.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

50.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry
