Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

4.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

5.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

6.
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

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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

10.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

11.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

12.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

13.
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

14.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

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.
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

17.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

18.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

19.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

20.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

21.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

22.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

23.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

27.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

28.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

29.
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

30.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

31.
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.

32.
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

33.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

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

39.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

40.
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

41.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

42.
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

43.
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

44.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

45.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

46.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

47.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

48.
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

49.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

50.
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
