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

3.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

4.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

5.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

6.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

7.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

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

9.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

10.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

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

Robertson Davies

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

16.
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

17.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

18.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

19.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

20.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

25.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

26.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

27.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

28.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

29.
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

30.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

31.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

32.
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.

33.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

34.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

35.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

36.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

37.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

38.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

39.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

44.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

49.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

50.
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
