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.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

3.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

4.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

5.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

6.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

7.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

8.
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

9.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

10.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

11.
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

12.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

13.
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

14.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

15.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

16.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

17.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

18.
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

19.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

20.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

21.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

22.
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.

23.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

26.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

27.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

28.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

29.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

30.
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

31.
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

32.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

33.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

34.
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

35.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

36.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

37.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

38.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

39.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

40.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

41.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

42.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

43.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

45.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

46.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

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

48.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

49.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

50.
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
