Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

2.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

3.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

4.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

5.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

6.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

7.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

8.
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

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

11.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

12.
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

13.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

14.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

15.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

17.
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

18.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

19.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

20.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

21.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

22.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

23.
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

24.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

25.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

26.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

27.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

28.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

29.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

30.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

31.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

32.
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

33.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

34.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

35.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

36.
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

37.
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

38.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

39.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

40.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

41.
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

42.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

43.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

44.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

45.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

46.
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

47.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

48.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

50.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)
