Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

2.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

3.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

4.
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

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

6.
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

7.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

8.
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

9.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

10.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

11.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

12.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

13.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

14.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

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.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

17.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

18.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

19.
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.

20.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

21.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

22.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

23.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

24.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

25.
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.

26.
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

27.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

28.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

29.
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

30.
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

31.
Ah! what would the world be to us If the children were no more? We should dread the desert behind us Worse than the dark before.
Longfellow, Henry Wadsworth

32.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

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

34.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

35.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

36.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

37.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

38.
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

39.
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

40.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

41.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

42.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

46.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

47.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

48.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

49.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

50.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark
