Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

2.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

7.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

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.
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.

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

12.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

13.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

14.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

15.
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

16.
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

17.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

18.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

19.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

20.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

21.
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

22.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

23.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

24.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

25.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

26.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

27.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

28.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

29.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

30.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

31.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

32.
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

33.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

34.
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

35.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

36.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

37.
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

38.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

39.
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

40.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

41.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

42.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

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

45.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton
