Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

3.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

4.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

5.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

6.
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

7.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

8.
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

9.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

10.
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

11.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

12.
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

13.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

14.
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

15.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

16.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

17.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

18.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

19.
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

20.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

21.
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.

22.
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

23.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

24.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

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

30.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

31.
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

32.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

33.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

34.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

35.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

36.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

37.
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

38.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

39.
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

Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

43.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

44.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

45.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

46.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

47.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

48.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

49.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

50.
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
