Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

3.
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

4.
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

5.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

6.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

7.
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

8.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

9.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

10.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

11.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

12.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

13.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

14.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

15.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

16.
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

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.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

19.
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

20.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

22.
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

23.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

24.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

26.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

27.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

28.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

29.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

30.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

31.
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

32.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

33.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

34.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

35.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

36.
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

37.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

38.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

39.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

40.
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

41.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

42.
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

43.
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

44.
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

45.
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

46.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
