Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

2.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

3.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

4.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

5.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

6.
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

7.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

8.
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

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

10.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

11.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

12.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

13.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

14.
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.

15.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
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

18.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

19.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

20.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

21.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

22.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

23.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

24.
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.

25.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

26.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

27.
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

28.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

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

30.
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

31.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

34.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

35.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

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

37.
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.

38.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

39.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

40.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

41.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

42.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

43.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

44.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

45.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

46.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

47.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

48.
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

49.
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

50.
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
