Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

2.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
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

5.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

6.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

7.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

8.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

9.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

10.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

11.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

12.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

13.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

18.
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

19.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

20.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
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

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

24.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

25.
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

26.
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

27.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

28.
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

29.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

30.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

31.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

32.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

33.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

34.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

35.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

36.
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

37.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

38.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

39.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

40.
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

41.
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

42.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

43.
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

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.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

48.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

49.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
