Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

5.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

6.
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

7.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

8.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

9.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

10.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

11.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

12.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

13.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

14.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

15.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

16.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

17.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

18.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

19.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

20.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

21.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

22.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

23.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

24.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

25.
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

26.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

27.
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

28.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

31.
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

32.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

33.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

34.
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

35.
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

36.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

37.
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

38.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

39.
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

40.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

41.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

42.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

46.

Plomp, John

47.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

48.
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

49.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

50.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.
