Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

2.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

3.
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

4.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

5.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

6.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

7.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

8.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

9.
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

10.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

11.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

13.
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

14.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

15.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

16.
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

17.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

18.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

25.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

26.
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

27.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

28.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

29.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

30.
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.

31.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

32.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

33.
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.

34.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

38.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

39.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

40.
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

41.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

42.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

43.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

46.
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

47.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

48.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

49.
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

50.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred
