Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

5.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

6.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

7.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

8.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

9.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

10.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

11.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

12.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

13.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

14.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

15.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

16.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

17.
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

18.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

19.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

20.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

21.
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

22.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

23.
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

24.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

25.
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

26.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

27.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

28.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

29.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

30.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

31.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

32.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

33.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

34.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

35.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

36.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

37.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

38.
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

39.
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

40.
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

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

42.
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

43.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.

Groucho Marx
