Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

3.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

4.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

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

6.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

9.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

10.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

11.
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

12.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

13.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

14.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

15.
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

16.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

17.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

18.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

19.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

20.
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

21.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

22.
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

23.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

24.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

25.
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

26.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

30.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

31.
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

32.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

33.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

34.
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

35.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

36.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

37.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

38.
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

39.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

40.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

41.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

42.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

43.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

44.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

45.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

46.
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

47.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

48.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

49.
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

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