Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

2.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

3.
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

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

5.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

6.
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

7.
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

8.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

9.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

10.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

11.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

12.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

13.
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

14.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

15.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

16.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

17.
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

18.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

19.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

20.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

21.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

22.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

23.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

24.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

25.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

26.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

27.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

28.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

29.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

30.
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

31.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

32.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

33.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

34.
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

35.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

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

37.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

38.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

39.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

40.
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

41.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

42.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

43.
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

44.
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

45.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

46.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

47.
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

48.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

49.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

50.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander
