Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

2.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

3.
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

4.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

5.
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

6.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

7.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

8.
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

9.
The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

10.
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

11.
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

12.
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

13.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

14.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

15.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

16.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

17.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

18.
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

19.
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

20.
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

21.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

22.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

23.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

24.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

25.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

26.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

27.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

28.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

29.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

30.
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

31.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

32.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

33.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

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

35.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

36.
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

37.
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

38.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

39.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

40.
If men do not keep on speaking terms with children, they cease to be men, and become merely machines for eating and for earning money.
Updike, John

41.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

42.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

43.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

44.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

45.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

46.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

47.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

48.
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

49.
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

50.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.
