Motivational Quotes

Children

Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
- Angelou, Maya

Best Quotes about Children

1.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

5.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

6.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

7.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

8.
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

9.
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

10.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

11.
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

12.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

13.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

14.
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

15.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

16.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

17.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

18.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

19.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

20.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

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

22.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

23.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

24.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

25.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

26.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

27.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

28.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

29.
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

30.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

31.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

33.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

34.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

35.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

36.
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

37.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

38.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

39.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

40.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

41.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

42.

Lewin, Roger

46.
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

47.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

48.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

49.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

50.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
