Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

5.
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.

6.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

7.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

8.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

9.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

10.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

11.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

12.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

13.
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

14.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

15.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

16.
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

17.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

18.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

19.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

20.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

21.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

22.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

23.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

24.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

25.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

26.
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.

27.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

28.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

29.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

34.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

35.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

36.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

37.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

38.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

39.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

40.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

41.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

42.
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

43.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

44.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

45.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

46.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

47.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

48.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

49.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

50.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb
