Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

2.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

3.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

4.
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

5.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

6.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

7.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

8.
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.

9.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

10.
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

11.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

12.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

13.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

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

15.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

16.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

17.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

18.
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

19.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

20.
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

21.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

22.
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

23.
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

24.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

25.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

26.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

27.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

28.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

29.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

30.
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

31.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

32.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

33.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

34.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

36.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

37.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

41.
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

42.
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

43.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

44.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

45.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

46.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

47.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

48.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

49.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

50.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John
