Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

2.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

3.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

5.
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

6.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

7.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

8.
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

9.
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

10.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

11.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

12.
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

13.
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

14.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

15.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

16.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

17.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

18.
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

19.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

20.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

21.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

22.
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

23.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

24.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

25.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

26.
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

27.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

28.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

29.
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

30.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

31.
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

32.
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.

33.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

34.
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

35.
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

36.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

37.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

38.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

39.
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

40.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

41.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

42.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

43.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

44.
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

45.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

46.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

47.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

48.
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

49.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

50.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh
