Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

2.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

3.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

7.
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

8.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

9.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

10.
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

11.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

12.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

13.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

14.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

15.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

16.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

18.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

19.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

20.
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

21.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

22.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

23.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

24.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

25.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

26.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

27.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

28.
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

29.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

30.
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

31.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

32.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

34.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

35.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

36.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

37.
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

38.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

39.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

40.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

41.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

42.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

43.
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.

44.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

45.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

46.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

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

49.
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

50.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.
