Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

4.
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

5.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

6.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

7.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

8.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

9.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

10.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

11.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

12.
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

13.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

14.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

15.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

16.
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

17.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

18.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

19.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

20.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

21.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

22.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

23.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

24.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

25.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

26.
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

27.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

28.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

29.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

30.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

31.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

32.
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

33.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

34.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

35.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

36.
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

37.
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

38.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

39.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

40.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

41.
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

42.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

43.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

45.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

46.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

47.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

48.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

49.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

50.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben
