Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

2.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

3.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

4.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

5.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

6.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

7.
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.

8.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

9.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

10.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

11.
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

12.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

13.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

14.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

15.
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

16.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

17.
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

18.
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

19.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

20.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

21.
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

22.
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

23.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

24.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

25.
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

26.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

28.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

29.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

30.
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

31.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

32.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
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

35.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

36.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

37.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

38.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

39.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

40.
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

41.
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

42.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

43.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

44.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

45.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

46.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

47.
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

48.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

49.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

50.
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
