Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

3.
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

4.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

5.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

6.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

8.
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

9.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

10.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

11.
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

12.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

13.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

14.
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.

15.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

16.
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

17.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

18.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

19.
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

20.
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

21.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

22.
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

23.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

24.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

25.
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

26.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

27.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

28.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

29.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

30.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

31.
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

32.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

33.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

34.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

35.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

36.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

37.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

38.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

39.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

40.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

41.
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

42.
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

43.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

44.
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

45.
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.

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

47.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

48.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

49.
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

50.
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.
