Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

2.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

3.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

4.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

7.
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

8.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

9.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

10.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

11.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

12.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

13.
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

14.
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

15.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

16.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

17.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

18.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

19.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

20.
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

21.
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

22.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

23.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

24.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

25.
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

26.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

27.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

28.
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

29.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

30.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

31.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

32.
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

33.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

34.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

35.
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

36.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

37.
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

38.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

39.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

40.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

41.
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

42.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

43.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

44.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

45.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

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

48.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

49.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

50.
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.
