Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

2.
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

3.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

4.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

5.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

6.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

7.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

8.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

9.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

10.
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

11.
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

12.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

13.
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

14.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

15.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
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.

19.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

20.
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

21.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

22.
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

23.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

28.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

29.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

30.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

31.
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

32.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

33.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

34.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

35.
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

36.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

37.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

38.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

39.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

40.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

41.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

42.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

43.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

44.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

45.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

46.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

47.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

48.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

49.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

50.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller
