Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

2.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

3.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

4.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

5.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

6.
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

7.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

8.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

9.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

10.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

11.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

12.
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

13.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

14.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

15.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

16.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

17.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

18.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

19.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

20.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
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

22.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

25.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

26.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

27.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

28.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

29.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

30.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

31.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

32.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

35.
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

36.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

37.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

38.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

39.
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

40.
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

41.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

42.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

43.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

44.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

45.
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

46.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

47.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

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