Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

3.
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

4.
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

5.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

6.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

7.
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

8.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

9.
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

10.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

11.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

12.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

13.
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

14.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

15.
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

16.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

17.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

18.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

19.
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

20.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

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.
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

24.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

25.
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

26.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

27.
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

28.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

29.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

30.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

31.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

32.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

33.
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

34.
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

35.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

36.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

37.
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.

38.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

39.
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

40.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

41.
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

42.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

43.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

44.
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

45.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

46.
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

47.
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

48.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

49.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

50.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus
