Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

2.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

3.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

4.
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

5.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

6.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

7.
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

8.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

16.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

17.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

18.
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

19.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

22.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

23.
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

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

26.
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

27.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

28.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

30.
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.

31.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

32.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

33.
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

34.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

35.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

36.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

37.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

38.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

39.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

40.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

41.
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

42.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

43.
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

44.
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

45.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

46.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

47.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

48.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

49.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

50.
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
