Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

2.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

3.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

4.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

5.
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

6.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

7.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

8.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

9.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

10.
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

11.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

12.
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

13.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

14.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

15.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

16.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

17.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

18.
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

19.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

20.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

21.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

22.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

23.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

24.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

25.
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

26.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

27.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

28.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

29.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

30.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

31.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

32.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

33.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

34.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

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

36.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

37.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

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

40.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

41.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

42.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

43.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

44.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

45.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

46.
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

47.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

48.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

49.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

50.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
