Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

2.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

3.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

4.
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

5.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

6.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

7.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

8.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

9.
Ask your child what he wants for dinner only if he's buying.
Fran Lebowitz

10.
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

11.
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

12.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph

13.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
For truly it is to be noted, that children's plays are not sports, and should be deemed as their most serious actions.
Montaigne, Michel Eyquem De

16.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

17.
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

18.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

19.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

20.
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

21.
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

22.
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

23.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

24.
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

25.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

26.
A three year old child is a being who gets almost as much fun out of a fifty-six dollar set of swings as it does out of finding a small green worm.
Vaughan, Bill

27.
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

28.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

29.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

30.
Little girl's definition of conscience: Something that makes you tell your mother before your brother or sister does.

31.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

32.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

33.
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

34.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

35.
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

36.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

37.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

38.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

39.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

40.
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

41.
A child is beset with long traditions. And his infancy is so old, so old, that the mere adding of years in the life to follow will not seem to throw it further back -- it is already so far.
Meynell, Alice

42.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

43.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

44.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

45.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

46.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

47.
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

48.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

49.
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

50.
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
