Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

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

4.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

8.
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.

9.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

10.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

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

12.
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

13.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

14.
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

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

17.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

18.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

19.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
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

21.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

22.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

23.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

24.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

25.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

26.
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

27.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

28.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

29.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

30.
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

31.
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

32.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

33.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

34.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

36.
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

37.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

38.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

39.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

40.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

41.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

42.
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

43.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell
