Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
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.

3.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

4.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

5.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

6.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

7.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

8.
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

9.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

10.
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

11.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

12.
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

13.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

14.
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

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

16.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

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.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

19.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

20.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

21.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

22.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

23.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

24.
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

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.
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

27.
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

28.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

29.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

30.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

31.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

32.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

33.
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

34.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

35.
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

36.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

37.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

38.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

39.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

40.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

41.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

42.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

43.
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

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

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

47.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

48.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

49.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

50.
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
