Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

2.
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

3.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

4.
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

5.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

6.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

7.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

8.
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

9.
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

10.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

11.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

12.
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

13.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

14.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

15.
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

16.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

17.
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

18.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

19.
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

20.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

21.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

22.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

23.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

24.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

25.
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

26.
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.

27.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

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

29.
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

30.
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

31.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

32.
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

33.
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

34.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

35.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

36.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

37.
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

38.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

39.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

40.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

41.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

42.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

43.
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

44.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

45.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

46.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

47.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

48.
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

49.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

50.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill
