Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

2.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

3.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

4.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

5.
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

6.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

7.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

8.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

9.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

10.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

11.
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

12.
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

13.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

14.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

15.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

18.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

19.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

20.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

21.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

22.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

23.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

24.
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

25.
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

26.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

27.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

28.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

29.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

30.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

31.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

32.
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

33.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

34.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

35.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

36.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

37.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

38.
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

39.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

40.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

41.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

42.
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

43.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

44.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

45.
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

46.
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.

47.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

48.
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

49.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

50.
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
