Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

2.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

3.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

4.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

5.
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

6.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

7.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

8.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

9.
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

10.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

11.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

12.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

13.
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

14.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

15.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

16.
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

17.
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

18.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

19.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

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

21.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

25.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

26.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

27.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

30.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

31.
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.

32.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

33.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

34.
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

35.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

36.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

37.
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

38.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

39.
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

40.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

41.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

42.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

43.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

44.
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

45.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

46.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

47.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

48.
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

49.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

50.
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
