Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

3.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

9.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

10.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

11.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

12.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

13.
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

14.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

16.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

17.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

18.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

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

21.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

22.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

23.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

24.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

25.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

26.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

27.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

28.
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

29.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

30.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

31.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

32.
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

33.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

34.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

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

36.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

37.
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

38.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

39.
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

40.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

41.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

42.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

43.
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.

44.
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

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.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

47.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

48.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

49.
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

50.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola
