Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

3.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

4.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

5.
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

6.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

7.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

8.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

9.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

10.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

11.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

12.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

13.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

14.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

15.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

16.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

17.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

18.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

19.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

20.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

21.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

22.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

23.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

26.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

27.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

28.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

29.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

30.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

31.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

32.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

33.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

34.
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

35.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

36.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

37.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

38.
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

39.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

40.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

41.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

42.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

43.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
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

45.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

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

47.
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

48.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

49.
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

50.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin
