Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

2.
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.

3.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

4.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

5.
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

6.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

7.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

8.
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

9.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

16.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

17.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

18.
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

19.
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

20.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

21.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

22.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

23.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
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

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

30.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

31.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

32.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

33.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

34.
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

35.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

36.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

37.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

38.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

39.
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

40.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

41.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

42.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

43.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

44.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

45.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

46.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

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

48.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

49.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

50.
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
