Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

2.
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

3.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

4.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

5.
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

6.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

7.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

8.
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

9.
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.

10.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

11.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

12.
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

13.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

14.
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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

19.
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

20.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

21.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

22.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

23.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

24.
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

25.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

26.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

27.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

28.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

29.
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

30.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

31.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

32.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

33.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

34.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

35.
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

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

38.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

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

41.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

42.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

43.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

44.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

45.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

46.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

47.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

48.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

49.
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

50.
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
