Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

2.
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

3.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

4.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

5.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

6.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

7.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

8.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

9.
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

10.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

11.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
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

14.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

15.
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

16.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

17.
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

18.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

19.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

20.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

21.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

22.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

23.
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

24.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

25.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

26.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

27.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

28.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

29.
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

30.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

31.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

32.
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

33.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

34.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

35.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

36.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

37.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

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

39.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

40.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

41.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

42.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

43.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

44.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

48.
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

49.
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

50.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von
