Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

2.
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

3.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

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

5.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

6.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

7.
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

8.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

9.
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

10.
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

11.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

12.
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

13.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

14.
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

15.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

16.
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

17.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

18.
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

19.
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

20.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

21.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

22.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

23.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

24.
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

25.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

26.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

27.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

28.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

29.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

30.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

31.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

32.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

33.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

34.
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

35.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

36.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

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

38.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

39.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

40.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

41.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

42.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

43.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

44.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

45.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

46.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

47.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

48.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

49.
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.

50.
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
