Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

3.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

4.
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

5.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

6.
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

7.
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

8.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

10.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

11.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

12.
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

13.
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

14.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

15.
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

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

18.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

19.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

20.
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

21.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

22.
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

23.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

24.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

25.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

26.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

27.
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

28.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

29.
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

30.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

31.
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

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

34.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

35.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

36.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

37.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

38.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

40.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

41.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

42.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

43.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

44.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

49.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

50.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying
