Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

2.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

3.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

7.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

8.
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

9.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

10.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

11.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

12.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

13.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

14.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

15.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

16.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

17.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

18.
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

19.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

20.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

21.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

22.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

23.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

24.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

25.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

26.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

27.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

28.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

29.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

30.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

31.
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

32.
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

33.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

34.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

35.
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

36.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

40.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

41.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

42.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

43.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

44.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

45.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

46.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

47.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

48.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

49.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

50.
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
