Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

2.
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

3.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

4.
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.

5.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

6.
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

7.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

10.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

11.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

12.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

13.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

14.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

15.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

16.
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

17.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

21.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

22.
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

23.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

24.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

25.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

26.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

27.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

28.
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.

29.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

30.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

31.
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

32.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

33.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

34.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

35.
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

36.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

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

38.
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

39.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

40.
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

41.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

42.
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

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.
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

45.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

46.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

47.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

48.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

49.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

50.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann
