Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

2.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

3.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

4.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

5.
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

6.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

7.
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

8.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

10.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

11.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

12.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

17.
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

18.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

19.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

20.
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

21.
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.

22.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

23.
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

24.
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

25.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

26.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

27.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

28.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

29.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

30.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

31.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

32.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

33.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

34.
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

35.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

36.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

37.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

41.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

42.
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.

43.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

44.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

45.

King Edward VIII

Howe, Edgar Watson

48.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

49.
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

50.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
