Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

2.
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

3.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

4.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

5.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

9.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

10.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

11.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

12.
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

13.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

14.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

15.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

17.
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

18.
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

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
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

21.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

22.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

23.
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

24.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

29.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

30.
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

31.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

32.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

33.
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

34.
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.

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
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

37.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

38.
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

39.
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

40.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

41.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

42.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

43.
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

44.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

47.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

48.
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

49.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

50.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia
