Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

2.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

6.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

7.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

8.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

9.
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

10.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

11.
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

12.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

13.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

14.
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

15.
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

16.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

17.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

18.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

19.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

20.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

21.
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.

22.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

23.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

24.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

25.
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

26.
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

27.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

28.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

29.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

30.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

31.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

32.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

33.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

34.
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

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

38.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

39.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

40.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

41.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

42.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

43.
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

44.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

45.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

46.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

47.
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

48.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

49.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

50.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry
