Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

2.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

3.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

4.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

5.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

6.
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

7.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

8.
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

9.
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

10.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

13.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

14.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

15.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

16.
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

17.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

18.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

19.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

20.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

21.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

25.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

26.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

27.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

28.
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

29.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

30.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
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

32.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

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

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

38.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

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

40.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

41.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

42.
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

43.
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

44.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

48.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

49.
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

50.
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
