Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

2.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

3.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

4.
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

5.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

6.
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

7.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

8.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

9.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

10.
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

11.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

12.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

13.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

14.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

15.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

16.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

17.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

18.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

19.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

20.
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

21.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

22.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

23.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

24.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

25.
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

26.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

27.
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

28.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

29.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

30.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

31.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

32.
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

33.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

34.
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

35.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
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

37.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

38.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

39.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

40.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

41.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

42.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

43.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

44.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

45.
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

46.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

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

48.
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

49.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

50.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis
