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.
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

3.
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.

4.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

5.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

6.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

7.
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

8.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

9.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

10.
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

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

12.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

13.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

14.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

15.
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

16.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

17.
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

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

20.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

21.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

22.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

23.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

24.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

25.
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

26.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

27.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

28.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

29.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

30.
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

31.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

32.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

33.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

34.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

35.
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

36.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

40.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

41.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

42.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

43.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

44.
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

45.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

46.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

47.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

48.
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

49.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

50.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.
