Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

2.
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

3.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

4.
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

5.
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

6.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

7.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

8.
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

9.
Young people should be helped, sheltered, ignored, and clubbed of necessary.
Capp, Al

10.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

11.
Children always turn to the light.
Hare, David

12.
In great countries, children are always trying to remain children, and the parents want to make them into adults. In vile countries, the children are always wanting to be adults and the parents want to keep them children.
Ruskin, John

13.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

14.
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

15.
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.

16.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

17.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

18.
My mother loved children -- she would have given anything if I had been one.
Groucho Marx

19.
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

20.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

21.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

22.
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

23.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

24.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

25.
There is no sinner like a young saint.
Behn, Aphra

26.
There are few successful adults who were not first successful children.
Chase, Alexander

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

29.
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

30.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

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

32.
Never raise your hand to your children; it leaves your midsection unprotected.
Robert Orben

33.
Discipline is a symbol of caring to a child. He needs guidance. If there is love, there is no such thing as being too tough with a child. A parent must also not be afraid to hang himself. If you have never been hated by your child, you have never been a parent.
Davis, Bette

34.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

35.
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

36.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

37.
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

38.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

39.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

40.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

41.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

42.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

43.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

44.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

45.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

46.
The potential possibilities of any child are the most intriguing and stimulating in all creation.
Wilbur, Ray L.

47.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

48.
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

49.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
