Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

2.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

3.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

4.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

5.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

6.

There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

10.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

14.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

15.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

16.
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

17.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

18.
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

19.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

20.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

21.
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

22.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

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

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

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

27.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

28.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

29.
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

30.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

31.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

32.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

33.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

34.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

35.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

36.
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.

43.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.

Franklin, Benjamin

45.
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

46.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

47.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

48.
