Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

2.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

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

5.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

6.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

7.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

9.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

10.
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

11.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

12.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

13.
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

14.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

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

16.
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

17.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

18.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

19.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

20.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

21.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

22.
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

23.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

24.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

25.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

26.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

27.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

28.
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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

32.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

33.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

34.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

35.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

36.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

37.
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

38.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

39.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

40.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

44.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

45.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

46.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

47.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

48.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
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
