Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

4.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

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.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

7.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

8.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

9.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

10.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

11.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

12.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

13.
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

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

16.
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

17.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

22.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

23.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

24.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

25.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

26.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

27.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

28.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

29.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

30.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

31.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

32.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

33.
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

34.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

35.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

36.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

37.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

38.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

39.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

40.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

41.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

42.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

43.
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

44.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

45.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

46.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

47.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

48.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

49.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

50.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh
