Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

2.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

3.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

4.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

5.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

6.
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

7.
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

8.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

9.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

10.
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

11.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

12.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

13.
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

14.
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

15.
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

16.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

17.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

18.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

19.
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

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

21.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

22.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

23.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

27.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

28.
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

29.
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

30.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

31.
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

32.
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

33.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

34.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

35.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

36.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

37.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

38.
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.

39.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

40.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

41.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

42.
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

43.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

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

45.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

46.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

47.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

48.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

49.
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

50.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English
