Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

2.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

3.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

4.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

5.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

6.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

7.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

8.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

9.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

10.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

11.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

12.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

13.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

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

15.
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.

16.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

17.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

22.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

23.
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

24.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

25.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

26.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

27.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

28.
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

29.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

30.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

31.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

32.
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

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

34.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

38.
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

39.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

40.
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

41.
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

42.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

43.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

44.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

45.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

46.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

47.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

48.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

49.
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

50.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker
