Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

2.
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

3.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

4.
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.

5.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

6.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

7.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

8.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

9.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

10.
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

11.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

12.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

13.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

14.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

15.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

16.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

17.
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

18.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

19.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

20.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

21.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

22.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

23.
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

24.
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

25.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

26.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

27.
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

28.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

29.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

30.
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

31.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

32.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

33.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

37.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

38.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

39.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

40.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

41.
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

42.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

46.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

47.
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

48.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

49.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

50.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird
