Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

2.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

3.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

4.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

5.
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

6.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

7.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

8.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

9.
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

10.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

11.
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.

12.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

13.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

14.
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

15.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

16.
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

17.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

18.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

19.
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

20.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

21.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

22.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

23.
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

24.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

25.
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

26.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

27.
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

28.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

29.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

30.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

31.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

32.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

33.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

37.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

38.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

39.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

40.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

41.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

42.
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

43.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

44.
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

45.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

47.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

48.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

49.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

50.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas
