Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

2.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

3.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

4.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

5.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

6.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

7.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

8.
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

9.
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

10.
As much as I converse with sages and heroes, they have very little of my love and admiration. I long for rural and domestic scene, for the warbling of birds and the prattling of my children
Adams, John

11.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

12.
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

13.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

17.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

18.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

19.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

20.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

22.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

23.
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

24.
Children are curious and are risk takers. They have lots of courage. They venture out into a world that is immense and dangerous. A child initially trusts life and the processes of life.
Bradshaw, John

25.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

26.
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

27.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

28.
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

29.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

30.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

31.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

32.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

33.
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

34.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

35.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

36.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

37.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

38.
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

39.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

40.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

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.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

43.
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

44.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

45.
Grown-ups never understand anything for themselves, and it is tiresome for children to be always and forever explaining things to them.
Antoine de Saint-Exupery

46.
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

47.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

48.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

49.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

50.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur
