Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

2.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

3.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

4.
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

5.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

6.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

7.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

8.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

9.
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

10.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

11.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

12.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
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

14.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

15.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

16.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

17.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

18.
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

19.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
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

21.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

22.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

23.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

24.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

25.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

26.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

27.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

28.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

29.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

30.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

31.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

32.
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

33.
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

34.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

36.
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

37.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

38.
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

39.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

40.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

41.
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

42.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

43.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

44.
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

45.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

46.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

47.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

48.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

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

50.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher
