Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

3.
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.

4.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

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

6.
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

7.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

8.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

9.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

10.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

11.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

12.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

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

14.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

15.
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

16.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

17.
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.

18.
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

19.
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

20.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

21.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

22.
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

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.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

25.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

26.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

27.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

28.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

32.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

33.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

34.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

35.
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

36.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

37.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

38.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

39.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

40.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

41.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

42.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

43.
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

44.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

45.
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

46.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

47.
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

48.
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

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

50.
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
