Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

2.
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

3.
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.

4.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

5.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

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

7.
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

8.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

9.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

10.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

11.
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

12.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

13.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

14.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

15.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

16.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

17.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

21.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

22.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

23.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

27.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

28.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

29.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

30.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

31.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

32.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

33.
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

34.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

35.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

36.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

38.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

39.
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

40.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

41.
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

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.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

44.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

45.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

46.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

47.
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

48.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

49.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

50.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.
