Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

2.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

3.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

7.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

8.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

9.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

10.
It were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and he cast into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones. [Luke 17:2]
Bible

11.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

12.
Children are excellent observers, and will often perceive your slightest defects. In general, those who govern children, forgive nothing in them, but everything in themselves.
FeNelon, Francois

13.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

14.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

15.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

16.
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

17.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

18.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

19.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

20.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

21.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

22.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

23.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

24.
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

25.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

26.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

27.
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.

28.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

29.
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

30.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

31.
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

32.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

33.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

34.
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

35.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

36.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

37.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

38.
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

39.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

40.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

41.
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

42.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

43.
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

44.
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

45.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

46.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

47.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

48.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

49.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

50.
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
