Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

2.
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

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

4.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

5.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

6.
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

7.
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

8.
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.

9.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

10.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

11.
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

12.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

14.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

15.
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

16.
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

17.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

18.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

19.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

20.
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

21.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

22.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

23.
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

24.
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.

25.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

26.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

27.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

28.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

29.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

30.
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

31.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

32.
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

33.
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

34.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

35.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

36.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

37.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

38.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

39.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

40.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

41.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

42.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

43.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

44.
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

45.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

46.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

47.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

48.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

49.
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

50.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English
