Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

2.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

3.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

4.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

5.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

6.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

7.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

8.
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

9.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

10.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

11.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

12.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

13.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

14.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

15.
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

16.
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

17.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

18.
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

19.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

20.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

21.
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

22.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

23.
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

24.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

25.
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

26.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

27.
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

28.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

29.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

30.
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.

31.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

32.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

33.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

34.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

35.
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

36.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

37.
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

38.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

39.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

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

41.
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

42.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

43.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

44.
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

45.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

46.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

47.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

48.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

49.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

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