Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

3.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

4.
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

5.
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

6.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

7.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

8.
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

9.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

10.
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

11.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

12.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

13.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

14.
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

15.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

16.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

17.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

18.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

19.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

20.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

21.
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

22.
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

23.
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

24.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

25.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

26.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

27.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

28.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

29.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

30.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

31.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

32.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

33.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

34.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

35.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

36.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

37.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

38.
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

39.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

40.
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

41.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

42.
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

43.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

44.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

45.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

46.
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

47.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

48.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

49.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

50.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry
