Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

2.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

3.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

4.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

5.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

6.
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

7.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

8.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

9.
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

10.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

11.
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

12.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

13.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

14.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

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

23.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

24.
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

25.
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

26.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

27.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

28.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

29.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

30.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

31.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

33.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

34.
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

35.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

36.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

37.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

38.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

39.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

40.
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

41.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

42.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

43.
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

44.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

45.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

46.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

47.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

48.
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

49.
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

50.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille
