Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

3.
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

4.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

5.
Give me four years to teach the children and the seed I have sown will never be uprooted.
Lenin, Vladimir Ilyich

6.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

7.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

8.
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

9.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

10.
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

11.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

12.
In all our efforts to provide advantages we have actually produced the busiest, most competitive, highly pressured, and over-organized generation of youngsters in our history.
Shan, Eda J. Le

13.
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

14.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

15.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

16.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

17.
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

18.
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

19.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

20.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

21.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

22.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

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

24.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

25.
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

26.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

27.
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

28.
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

29.
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

30.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

31.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

32.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

33.
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

34.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

35.
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

36.
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

37.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

38.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

39.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

40.
Children suck the mother when they are young and the father when they are old.
Proverb, English

41.
The child with his sweet pranks, the fool of his senses, commanded by every sight and sound, without any power to compare and rank his sensations, abandoned to a whistle or a painted chip, to a lead dragoon, or a gingerbread dog, individualizing everything, generalizing nothing, delighted with every new thing, lies down at night overpowered by the fatigue, which this day of continual pretty madness has incurred. But Nature has answered her purpose with the curly, dimpled lunatic. She has tasked every faculty, and has secured the symmetrical growth of the bodily frame, by all these attitudes and exertions --an end of the first importance, which could not be trusted to any care less perfect than her own.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

42.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

43.
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

44.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

45.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

46.
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

47.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

48.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

49.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

50.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann
