Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

3.
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

4.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

5.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

6.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

7.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

8.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

9.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

10.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

11.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

12.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

13.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

14.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

15.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

16.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

17.
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

18.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

19.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

22.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

23.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

24.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

25.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

26.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

27.
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

28.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

29.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
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

32.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

33.
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

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

35.
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

36.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

37.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

38.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

39.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

40.
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

41.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

42.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

43.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

44.
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

45.
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

46.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

47.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

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

49.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

50.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia
