Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

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

Angier, Bradford Arthur

Tracy, Brian

7.
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.

Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

Fran Lebowitz

14.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

15.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

16.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

17.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

18.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

19.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

20.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

21.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.

22.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

23.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

24.
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

25.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

26.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

28.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

29.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

30.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

31.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

32.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

33.
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

34.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

35.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

36.
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

37.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.

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

48.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold
