Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

3.
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

4.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

5.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

6.
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.

7.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

8.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

9.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

10.
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

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

12.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

13.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

14.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
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

16.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

17.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

18.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

19.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

20.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

21.
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

22.
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

23.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

24.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

25.
To rescue our children we will have to let them save us from the power we embody: we will have to trust the very difference that they forever personify. And we will have to allow them the choice, without fear of death: that they may come and do likewise or that they may come and that we will follow them, that a little child will lead us back to the child we will always be, vulnerable and wanting and hurting for love and for beauty.
Jordan, June

26.
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

27.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

28.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

29.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

30.
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

31.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

32.
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

33.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

34.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

35.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

36.
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

37.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

38.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

39.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

40.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

41.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

42.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

43.
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

44.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

45.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

46.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

47.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

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.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

50.
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.
