Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

2.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

3.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

4.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

5.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

6.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

7.
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

8.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

9.
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

10.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

11.
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

12.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

13.
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

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

15.
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

16.
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

17.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid

18.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

19.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

20.
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

21.
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

22.
It is not a bad thing that children should occasionally, and politely, put parents in their place.
Colette, Sidonie Gabrielle

23.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

24.
A happy childhood has spoiled many a promising life.
Robertson Davies

25.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

26.
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

27.
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

28.
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

29.
All my life through, the new sights of Nature made me rejoice like a child.
Curie, Madame Marie

30.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

31.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

32.
You know children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
Plomp, John

33.
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

34.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

35.
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

36.
Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them.
Oscar Wilde

37.
The child is the father of the man.
Wordsworth, William

38.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund

39.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

40.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

41.
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

42.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
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

45.
If we had paid no more attention to our plants than we have to our children, we would now be living in a jungle of weed.
Burbank, Luther

46.
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

47.
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

48.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

49.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

50.
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
