Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

2.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

3.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

4.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

5.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

6.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

7.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

8.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

9.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

10.
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

11.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

12.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

13.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

14.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

15.
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

16.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

17.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

18.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

19.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

20.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

21.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

22.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

23.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

24.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

25.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

26.
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

27.
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

28.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

29.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

30.
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.

31.
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

32.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

33.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

34.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

35.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

36.
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

37.
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

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.
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

40.
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

41.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

42.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

43.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

44.
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

45.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

46.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

47.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

48.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

49.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

50.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.
