Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

6.
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

7.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

8.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

9.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

10.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

14.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

15.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

16.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

17.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

18.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

19.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

20.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

25.
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

26.
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

27.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

28.
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

29.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

30.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

31.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

32.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

33.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

34.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

35.
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

36.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

37.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

41.
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

42.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

45.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

46.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

47.
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

48.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

49.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

50.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess
