Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

2.
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

3.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

4.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

5.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

6.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

10.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

11.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

15.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

16.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

17.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

18.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

19.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

20.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

21.
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

22.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

23.
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.

24.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

25.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

26.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

27.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

30.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

31.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

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

33.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

34.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

35.
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

36.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

37.
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

38.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

39.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

40.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

45.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

46.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

47.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

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

49.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

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