Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

2.
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

3.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

4.
Children seldom have a proper sense of their own tragedy, discounting and keeping hidden the true horrors of their short lives, humbly imagining real calamity to be some prestigious drama of the grown-up world.
Hazzard, Shirley

5.
Kids are wonderful, but I like mine barbecued.
Hope, Bob

6.
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

7.
Children are not casual guests in our home. They have been loaned to us temporarily for the purpose of loving them and instilling a foundation of values on which their future lives will be built.
Dobson, Dr. James C.

8.
It might sound a paradoxical thing to say --for surely never has a generation of children occupied more sheer hours of parental time --but the truth is that we neglected you. We allowed you a charade of trivial freedoms in order to avoid making those impositions on you that are in the end both the training ground and proving ground for true independence. We pronounced you strong when you were still weak in order to avoid the struggles with you that would have fed your true strength. We proclaimed you sound when you were foolish in order to avoid taking part in the long, slow, slogging effort that is the only route to genuine maturity of mind and feeling. Thus, it was no small anomaly of your growing up that while you were the most indulged generation, you were also in many ways the most abandoned to your own meager devices by those into whose safe-keeping you had been given.
Decter, Midge

9.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

10.
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

11.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

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

14.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

15.
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

16.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

17.
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

18.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

19.
Children are poor men's riches.
Ray, John

20.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

21.
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

22.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

23.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

24.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts. For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, for their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
Gibran, Kahlil

25.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

26.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

27.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

28.
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

29.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

30.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

31.
A child is not a salmon mousse. A child is a temporarily disabled and stunted version of a larger person, whom you will someday know. Your job is to help them overcome the disabilities associated with their size and inexperience so that they get on with being that larger person.
Ehrenreich, Barbara

32.
Children in a family are like flowers in a bouquet: there's always one determined to face in an opposite direction from the way the arranger desires.
Cox, Marcelene

33.
Children are the keys of paradise.
Stoddard, Richard Henry

34.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

35.
Childhood is the sleep of reason.
Rousseau, Jean Jacques

36.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

37.
Children are all foreigners.
Ralph Waldo Emerson

38.
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

39.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

40.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

41.
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

42.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

43.
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

44.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

45.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

46.
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

47.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

48.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

49.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

50.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William
