Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

3.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

4.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

5.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

6.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

7.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

8.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

9.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

10.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

11.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

12.
She discovered with great delight that one does not love one's children just because they are one's children but because of the friendship formed while raising them.
Marquez, Gabriel Garcia

13.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

14.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

15.
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

16.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

18.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

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

21.
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

22.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

23.
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

24.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

25.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

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.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

28.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

29.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

30.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

31.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

32.
Even though your kids will consistently do the exact opposite of what you're telling them to do, you have to keep loving them just as much.
Cosby, Bill

33.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

34.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

35.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

36.
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

37.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

38.
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

39.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

40.
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

41.
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

42.
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

43.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

44.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

45.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

46.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

47.
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

48.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

49.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

50.
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
