Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

2.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

3.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

4.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

5.
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

6.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

7.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

8.
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

9.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

10.
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

11.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

12.
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

13.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

14.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

15.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

16.
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

17.
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

18.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

19.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

20.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

21.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

22.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

23.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

24.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

25.
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

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

27.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

28.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

29.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

30.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

31.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

32.
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

33.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

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

36.
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

37.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

38.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

39.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

40.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

41.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

42.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

43.
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

44.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

45.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

46.
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

47.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

48.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

49.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

50.
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
