Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

2.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

3.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

4.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

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

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

The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

8.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

9.
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

10.
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.

11.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

12.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

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

14.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

15.
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

16.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

17.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

18.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

19.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

20.
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

21.
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

22.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

23.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

24.
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

25.
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

26.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

27.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

28.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

29.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

30.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

31.
It is amazing how quickly the kids learn to drive a car, yet are unable to understand the lawnmower, snow-blower, or vacuum cleaner.
Bergor, Ben

32.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

33.
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

34.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

35.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

36.
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

37.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

38.
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

39.
Of all the needs (there are none imaginary) a lonely child has, the one that must be satisfied, if there is going to be hope and a hope of wholeness, is the unshaken need for an unshakable God.
Angelou, Maya

40.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

41.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

42.
Children see in their parents the past, their parents see in them the future; and if we find more love in the parents for their children than in children for their parents, this is sad but natural. Who does not entertain his hopes more than his recollections.
Ruskin, John

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.
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

45.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

46.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

47.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

48.
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

49.
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

50.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard
