Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

2.
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.

3.
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

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

6.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

7.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

8.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

9.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

10.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

14.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

15.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

16.
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.

17.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

18.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

19.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

20.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

26.
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

27.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

28.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

29.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

30.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

31.
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

32.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

33.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

34.
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

35.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

36.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

37.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

38.
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

39.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

40.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

41.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

42.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

43.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

44.
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

45.
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

46.
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

47.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

48.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

49.
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

50.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.
