Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

3.
D'you call life a bad job? Never! We've had our ups and downs, we've had our struggles, we've always been poor, but it's been worth it, ay, worth it a hundred times I say when I look round at my children.
W. Somerset Maugham

4.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

5.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

6.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

7.
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

8.
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

9.
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

10.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

11.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

14.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

15.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

16.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

17.
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

18.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

19.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

20.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

21.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

22.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

23.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

24.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

25.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

26.
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

27.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

28.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

29.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

30.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

31.
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

32.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

33.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

34.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

35.
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

36.
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

37.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

38.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

39.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

40.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

41.
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

42.
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.

43.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

44.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

45.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

46.
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

47.
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

48.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

49.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

50.
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
