Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

2.
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

3.
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

4.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

5.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

6.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

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.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

9.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

10.
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

11.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

12.
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

13.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

14.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

15.
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

16.
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

17.
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

18.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

19.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

20.
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

21.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

22.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

23.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

24.
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

25.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

26.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

27.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

28.
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

29.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

30.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

31.
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

32.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

33.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

34.
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

35.
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

36.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

37.
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

38.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

39.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

40.
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

41.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

42.
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

43.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

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.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

46.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

47.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

48.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

49.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

50.
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
