Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

2.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

3.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

4.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

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

6.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

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

8.
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

9.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

10.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

11.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

12.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

13.

Bachelard, Gaston

14.

Wordsworth, William

15.
If you raise your children to feel that they can accomplish any goal or task they decide upon, you will have succeeded as a parent and you will have given your children the greatest of all blessings.
Tracy, Brian

16.
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

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

20.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

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

22.
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

23.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

24.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

25.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

26.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

27.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

28.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

29.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

30.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

31.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

32.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

33.
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

34.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

35.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

36.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

37.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

38.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

39.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

40.
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

41.
Nothing you do for children is ever wasted. They seem not to notice us, hovering, averting our eyes, and they seldom offer thanks, but what we do for them is never wasted.
Keillor, Garrison

42.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

43.
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

44.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

45.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

46.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

47.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

48.
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

49.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

50.
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
