Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

3.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

4.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

5.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

6.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
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.

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

13.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

14.
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

15.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

16.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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

21.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

22.
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

23.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

24.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

25.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

26.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

27.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

28.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

31.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

32.
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

33.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

34.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

35.
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

36.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

37.
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

38.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

39.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

40.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

41.
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

42.
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

43.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

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.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

46.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

47.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

48.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

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.

50.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
