- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

2.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

3.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

4.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

5.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

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

7.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

8.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

9.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

10.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

11.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

12.
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

13.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

14.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

15.
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

16.
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

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

19.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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.
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

22.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

23.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

24.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

25.
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

26.
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

27.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

28.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

29.
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

30.
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

31.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

32.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

35.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

36.
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

37.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

38.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

39.
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

40.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.

Kennedy, John F.
