Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

2.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

3.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

4.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

5.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

6.
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

7.
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.

8.
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

9.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

10.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

11.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

12.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

13.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

14.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

17.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

18.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

19.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

20.
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.

21.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

22.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

23.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

24.
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

25.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

29.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

30.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

34.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

35.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

36.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

37.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

38.
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

39.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

40.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

41.
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

42.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

43.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

44.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

45.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

46.
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

47.
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.

48.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

50.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki
