Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

5.
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

6.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

9.
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.

10.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

11.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

16.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

17.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

18.
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

19.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

20.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

21.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

22.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

23.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

24.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

33.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

34.
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

35.
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

36.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

37.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

38.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

39.
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

40.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

41.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

42.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

43.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

44.
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

45.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

46.
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

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

49.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

50.
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
