Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

2.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

3.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

4.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

5.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

6.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

7.
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

8.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

9.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

10.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

11.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

12.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

13.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

14.
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

15.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

16.
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

17.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

18.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

19.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

20.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

21.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

22.
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

23.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

24.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

25.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

26.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

27.
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

28.
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

29.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

30.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

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

32.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

33.
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

34.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

35.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

36.
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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

40.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

41.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

42.
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

43.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

48.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

49.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

50.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June
