Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

2.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

6.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

7.
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

8.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

9.
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

10.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

11.
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

12.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

13.
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

14.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

15.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
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

17.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

18.
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

19.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

20.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

21.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

22.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

23.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

24.
When I consider how little of a rarity children are -- that every street and blind alley swarms with them -- that the poorest people commonly have them in most abundance -- that there are few marriages that are not blest with at least one of these bargains -- how often they turn out ill, and defeat the fond hopes of their parents, taking to vicious courses, which end in poverty, disgrace, the gallows, etc. -- I cannot for my life tell what cause for pride there can possibly be in having them.
Lamb, Charles

25.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

26.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

27.
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

28.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

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

30.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

31.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

34.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

35.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

36.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

37.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

38.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

39.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

40.
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

41.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

42.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

43.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

44.
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

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

47.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

48.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

49.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

50.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison
