Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

3.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

4.
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

5.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

6.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

9.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

10.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

11.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

12.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

13.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

14.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

15.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

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

17.
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

18.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

19.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

22.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

23.
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

24.
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

25.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

26.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

27.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

28.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

29.
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

30.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

31.
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

32.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

33.
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

34.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

40.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

41.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

42.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

43.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

44.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

45.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

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.
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

48.
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

49.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

50.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.
