Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

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.
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

4.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

5.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

6.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

7.
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

8.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

9.
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

10.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

11.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

13.
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

14.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

15.
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

16.
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

17.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

18.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

19.
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

20.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

21.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

22.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

23.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

24.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

25.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

26.
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

27.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

28.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

29.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

30.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

31.
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

32.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

33.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

40.
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

41.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

42.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

43.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

44.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

45.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

46.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

47.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

48.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

49.
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

50.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
