Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

2.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

3.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

4.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

5.
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

6.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

8.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

9.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

10.
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

11.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

12.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

13.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

14.
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

15.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

16.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

17.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

18.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

19.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

20.
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

21.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

22.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

23.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

27.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

28.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

29.
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

30.
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

31.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

32.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

33.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

34.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

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

37.
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

38.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

39.

Tracy, Brian

41.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

42.
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

43.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

44.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

45.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

46.
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.

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
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

49.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

50.
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
