Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

2.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

3.
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

4.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

5.
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.

6.
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

7.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

8.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

9.
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

10.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

11.
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

12.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

13.
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

14.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

15.
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

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
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

19.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

20.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

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

22.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

23.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

24.
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

25.
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

26.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

27.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

28.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

29.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

30.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

31.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

32.
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

33.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

34.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

35.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

36.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

37.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

38.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

42.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

43.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

44.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

45.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

46.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

47.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

48.
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

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