For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
- Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

2.
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

3.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

4.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

5.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

6.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

7.
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

8.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

9.
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

10.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

11.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

12.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

13.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

14.
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

15.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
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

17.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

18.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

19.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

20.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

21.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

22.
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

23.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

24.
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

25.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

26.
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

27.
A young and vital child knows no limit to his own will, and it is the only reality to him. It is not that he wants at the outset to fight other wills, but that they simply do not exist for him. Like the artist, he goes forth to the work of creation, gloriously alone.
Harrison, Jane

28.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

29.
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

30.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

31.
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

32.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

33.
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

34.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

35.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

36.
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

37.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

38.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

39.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

40.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

41.
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

42.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

43.
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

44.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

45.
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

46.
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

47.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

48.
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

49.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

50.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.
