Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

2.
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

3.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

4.
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

5.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

6.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

7.
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

8.
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

9.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

10.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

11.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

12.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

13.
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

14.
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

15.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

16.
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

17.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

18.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

19.
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

20.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

21.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

22.
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

23.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

24.
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

25.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

26.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

27.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

28.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

29.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

30.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

31.
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

32.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

33.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

34.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

35.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

36.
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

37.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

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

39.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

40.
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

41.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

42.
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

43.
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

44.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

47.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

48.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

49.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

50.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
