Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

2.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

3.
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

4.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

8.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

9.
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

10.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

11.
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

12.
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

13.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

14.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

15.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

16.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

17.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

18.
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

19.
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

20.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

21.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

22.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

23.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

24.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

29.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

30.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

31.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

32.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

33.
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

34.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

35.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

36.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

37.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

38.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

39.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

40.
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

41.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

42.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

43.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

44.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

45.
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

46.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

47.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

48.
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

49.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

50.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold
