Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

3.
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

4.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

5.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

6.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

7.
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

8.
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

9.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

10.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

11.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

12.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

13.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

14.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

15.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

19.
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

20.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

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

22.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

23.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

24.
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

25.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

26.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

27.
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

28.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

29.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

30.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

31.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

32.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

33.
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

34.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

35.
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

36.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

37.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

38.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

39.
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

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

41.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

42.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

43.
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

44.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

45.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

46.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

47.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

48.
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

49.
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

50.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya
