Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

3.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

4.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

5.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

6.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

7.
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

8.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

9.
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

10.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

11.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

12.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

13.
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

14.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

15.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

16.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

17.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

18.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

19.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

20.
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

21.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

22.
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

23.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

24.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

25.
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

26.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

27.
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

28.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

29.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

30.
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

31.
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

32.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

33.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

34.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

37.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

38.
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

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

40.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

41.
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

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

44.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

45.
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

46.
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

47.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

48.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

49.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

50.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John
