Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

2.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

3.
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

4.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
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

8.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

9.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

10.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

11.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

12.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

13.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

14.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

15.
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

16.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

17.
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

18.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

19.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

20.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

21.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

22.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

23.
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

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

25.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

26.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

27.
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

28.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

29.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

30.
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

31.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

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

33.
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

34.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

35.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

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.
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

38.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

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

41.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

42.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

43.
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

44.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

45.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

46.
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

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

49.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

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