Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

4.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

5.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

6.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

7.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

8.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

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

10.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

11.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
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

13.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

14.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

15.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

16.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

17.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

18.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

19.
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

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

22.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

26.
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

27.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

28.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

29.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

30.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

31.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

34.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

35.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

36.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

38.
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

39.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

40.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

41.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

42.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

43.
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

44.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

45.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

46.
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

47.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

48.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

49.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

50.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray
