Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

3.
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.

4.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

5.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

6.
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

7.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

8.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

9.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

10.
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

11.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

12.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

13.
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

14.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

15.
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

16.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

17.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

18.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

19.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

20.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

21.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

22.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

23.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

24.
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

25.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

26.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

27.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

28.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

29.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

30.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

34.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

35.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

36.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

37.
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

38.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

39.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

40.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

41.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

42.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

43.
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

44.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

45.
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

46.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

47.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

48.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

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

50.
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
