Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

2.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

3.
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

4.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

5.
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

6.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

7.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

8.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

9.
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

10.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

11.
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

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

13.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

17.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

18.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

19.
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

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

21.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

22.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

23.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

24.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

25.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

26.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

27.
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

28.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

29.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

30.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

31.
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

32.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

33.
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

34.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

35.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

36.
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.

37.
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

38.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

39.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

40.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

41.
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

42.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

43.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

44.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

47.
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

48.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

49.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

50.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich
