Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

5.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

6.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

7.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

8.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

9.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

10.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

11.
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

12.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

13.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

14.
We cannot fashion our children after our desires, we must have them and love them as God has given them to us.
Goethe, Johann Wolfgang Von

15.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

16.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

17.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

18.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

19.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

20.
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

21.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

22.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

23.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

24.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

25.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

26.
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

27.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

28.
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

29.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

30.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

31.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

32.
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

33.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

34.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

35.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

36.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

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

38.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

39.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

40.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

41.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

42.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

43.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

44.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

45.
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

46.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

47.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

48.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

49.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

50.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp
