Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

3.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

4.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

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

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

8.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

10.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

13.
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

14.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

15.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

16.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

17.
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

18.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

19.
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.

20.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

21.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

22.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

23.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

24.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

25.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

26.
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

27.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

28.
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

29.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

30.
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

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

33.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

34.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

36.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

37.
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

38.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

39.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

40.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

41.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

44.
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

45.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

46.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

47.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold
