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



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

2.
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

3.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

4.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

5.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

6.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

7.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

8.
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

9.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

10.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

11.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

12.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

13.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

18.
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

19.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

20.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

21.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

22.
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

23.
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

24.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

25.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

26.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

27.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

28.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

29.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

30.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

31.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

32.
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

33.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

34.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

35.
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

36.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

37.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

38.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

39.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

40.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

41.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

42.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

43.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

44.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

45.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

46.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

47.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

48.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

49.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

50.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James
