Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

2.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

3.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

4.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

5.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

6.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

7.
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

8.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

9.
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

10.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

11.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

12.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

13.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

14.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

15.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

16.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

17.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

18.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

19.
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

20.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

21.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

22.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

23.
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

24.
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

25.
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

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

28.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

29.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

30.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

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

32.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

33.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

34.
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

35.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

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

37.
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

38.
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

39.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

40.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

41.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

42.
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

43.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

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

45.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

46.
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

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.
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

49.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

50.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson
