Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

2.
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

3.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

4.
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

5.
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

6.
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

7.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

8.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

9.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

10.
Pretty much all the honest truth telling there is in the world is done by children.
Holmes, Oliver Wendell

11.
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

12.
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

13.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

14.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

15.
Each child is an adventure into a better life --an opportunity to change the old pattern and make it new.
Humphrey, Hubert H.

16.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

17.
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

18.
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

19.
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

20.
Every child is an artist. The problem is to remain an artist once they grow up.
Picasso, Pablo

21.
Before I got married, I had six theories about bringing up children. Now I have six children and no theories.
Wilmot, John

22.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

23.
Adults find pleasure in deceiving a child. They consider it necessary, but they also enjoy it. The children very quickly figure it out and then practice deception themselves.
Canetti, Elias

24.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

25.
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

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

30.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
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

32.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

33.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

34.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

35.
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

36.
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

37.
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

38.
For unflagging interest and enjoyment, a household of children, if things go reasonably well, certainly all other forms of success and achievement lose their importance by comparison.
Roosevelt, Theodore

39.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

40.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

41.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

42.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

43.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

44.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

45.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

46.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

47.
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

48.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

49.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

50.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett
