Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

2.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

3.
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.

4.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

5.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

6.
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

7.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

8.
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

9.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

10.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

13.
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

14.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

15.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

16.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

17.
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

18.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

19.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

20.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

21.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

22.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

23.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

24.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

25.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

26.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
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

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
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

32.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

33.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

34.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

35.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

36.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

37.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.

38.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

39.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

40.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

41.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

42.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

43.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

44.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

45.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

46.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

47.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

48.
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

49.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

50.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle
