Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

4.
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

5.
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

6.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

7.
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

8.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

9.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

10.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

11.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

12.
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

13.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

14.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

15.
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

16.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

17.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

18.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

19.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

20.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

21.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

22.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

23.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

24.
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

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

28.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

29.
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

30.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

31.
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

32.
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

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

35.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

36.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

37.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

38.
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

39.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

40.
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

41.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

42.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

43.
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

44.
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

45.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

46.
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

47.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

48.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

49.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

50.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen
