Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

3.
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

4.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

5.
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

6.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

7.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

8.
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

9.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

10.
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

11.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

12.
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.

13.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

14.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

15.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

16.
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

17.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

18.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

19.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

20.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

21.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

22.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

23.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

24.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

25.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

30.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

31.
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

32.
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

33.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

34.
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

35.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

36.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

37.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

38.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

39.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

40.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

41.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

42.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

43.
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

44.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

45.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

46.
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

47.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

48.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

49.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

50.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl
