Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
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

4.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

5.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

6.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

7.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

9.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

10.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

11.
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

12.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

13.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

14.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

15.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

16.
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

17.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

18.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

23.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

24.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

25.
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

26.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

27.
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

28.
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

29.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

30.
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

31.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

32.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

33.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

34.
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

35.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

36.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

37.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

38.
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

39.
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.

40.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

41.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

42.
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

43.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

44.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

45.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

46.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.

For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

48.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

49.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

50.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.
