Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

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 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.

4.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

5.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

6.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

7.
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

8.
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

9.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

10.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

11.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

12.
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

13.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

14.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

15.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

16.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

20.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

21.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

22.
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

23.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

24.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

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.
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

27.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

28.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

29.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

30.
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

31.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

32.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

33.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

34.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

36.
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

37.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

38.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

39.
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

40.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

41.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

42.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

43.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

44.
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

45.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

46.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

47.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

50.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel
