Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

2.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

3.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

4.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

5.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

6.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

7.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

8.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

9.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

10.
Alas! regardless of their doom, the little victims play! No sense have they of ills to come nor care beyond today.
Gray, Thomas

11.
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

12.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

13.
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

14.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

15.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

16.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

17.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

18.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

19.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

20.
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.

21.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

22.
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

23.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

24.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

25.
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

26.
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

27.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

28.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

29.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

The planting of trees in the least self-centered of all that we can do. It is a purer act of faith than the procreation of children.
Wilder, Thornton

31.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

32.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

33.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

34.
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

35.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

36.
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

37.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

38.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

39.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

40.
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

41.
I am amused when goody-goodies proclaim, from the safety of their armchairs, that children are naturally prejudice-free, that they only learn to "hate" from listening to bigoted adults. Nonsense. Tolerance is a learned trait, like riding a bike or playing the piano. Those of us who actually live among children, who see them in their natural environment, know the truth: Left to their own devices, children will gang up on and abuse anyone who is even slightly different from the norm.
Josh Lieb

42.
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

43.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

44.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

45.
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

46.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

47.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

48.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

49.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

50.
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
