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
Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

2.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

3.
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

4.
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

5.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

6.
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

7.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

8.
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

9.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

10.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

11.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

12.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

13.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

14.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

15.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

16.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

17.
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

18.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

19.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

20.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

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

23.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

24.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

25.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

26.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

27.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

28.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

29.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

30.
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

31.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

32.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

33.
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

34.
Be gentle with the young.
Juvenal

35.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

36.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

37.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

38.
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

39.
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

40.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

41.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

42.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

43.
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.

44.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

45.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

46.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

47.
No man can tell but he that loves his children, how many delicious accents make a man's heart dance in the pretty conversation of those dear pledges; their childishness, their stammering, their little angers, their innocence, their imperfections, their necessities, are so many little emanations of joy and comfort to him that delights in their persons and society.
Taylor, Jeremy

48.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

49.
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

50.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret
