Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

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

3.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

4.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

5.
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

6.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

7.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

8.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

9.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

10.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

11.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

12.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

13.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

18.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

19.
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

20.
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

21.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

22.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

23.
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

24.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

25.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

26.
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

27.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

28.
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

29.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

30.
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

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

35.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

36.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

37.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

38.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

39.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

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.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

42.
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

43.
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

44.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

45.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

46.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

47.
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

48.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

49.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

50.
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
