Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
- Wilmot, John
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

3.
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

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

7.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

8.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

9.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

10.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

11.
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

12.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

13.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
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

15.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

16.
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

17.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

18.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

19.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

21.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

22.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

23.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

24.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

25.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

26.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

27.
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

28.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

29.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

31.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

32.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

33.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

34.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

35.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

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

39.
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

40.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

41.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

42.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

43.
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

44.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

45.
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

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

48.
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

49.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

50.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden
