Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

3.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

5.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

6.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

7.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

8.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

9.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

10.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

11.
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

12.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

13.
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

14.
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

15.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

20.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

21.
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

22.
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

23.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

24.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

25.
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

26.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

27.
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.

28.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
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

31.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

32.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

33.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

34.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

35.
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

36.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

37.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

40.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

41.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

42.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

43.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

44.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

45.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

46.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

47.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

48.
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

Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold
