- Polanski, Roman
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

2.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

3.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

4.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

5.
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

6.
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

7.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

8.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

10.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

11.
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

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

Joubert, Joseph

15.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

16.
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

17.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

18.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

19.
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

20.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

21.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

22.
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

23.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
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

26.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

27.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

28.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

29.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

30.
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

31.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

32.
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

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

34.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

35.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

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

37.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

38.
I have been assured by a very knowing American of my acquaintance in London, that a young healthy child, well nursed, is at a year old, a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled; and I make no doubt that it will equally serve in a fricassee, or a ragout.
Swift, Jonathan

39.
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

40.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

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

44.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

45.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

46.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

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

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

50.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.
