Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

2.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

3.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

4.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

5.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

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

7.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

8.
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

9.
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

10.
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

11.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

12.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

13.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

14.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

15.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

16.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

17.
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

18.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

19.
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

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
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.

22.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

23.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

24.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

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.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

32.
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

33.
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

34.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

38.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

39.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

40.
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

41.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

42.
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

43.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

44.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

45.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

46.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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

50.
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
