Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Our children change us... whether they live or not.
Lois McMaster Bujold

2.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

3.
A child is fed with milk and praise.
Lamb, Mary

4.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

5.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

6.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

7.
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

8.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

9.
Don't throw away your friendship with your teenager over behavior that has no great moral significance. There will be plenty of real issues that require you to stand like a rock. Save your big guns for those crucial confrontations.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

10.
Our children will not survive our habits of thinking, our failures of the spirit, our wreck of the universe into which we bring new life as blithely as we do. Mostly, our children will resemble our own misery and spite and anger, because we give them no choice about it. In the name of motherhood and fatherhood and education and good manners, we threaten and suffocate and bind and ensnare and bribe and trick children into wholesale emulation of our ways.
Jordan, June

11.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

12.
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

13.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

14.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

15.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

16.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

17.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

18.
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

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

21.
What's more enchanting than the voices of young people, when you can't hear what they say?
Smith, Logan Pearsall

22.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

23.
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.

24.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

25.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

26.
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

27.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

28.
Children need love, especially when they don't deserve it.
Hulbert, Harold

29.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

30.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

31.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

32.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

33.
He continued to be an infant long after he ceased to be a prodigy.
Moses, Robert

34.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig

35.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

36.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

37.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

38.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

39.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

40.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.

41.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

42.

Mead, Margaret

44.
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

45.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

46.
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.

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

48.
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

49.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

50.
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
