Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
People who get nostalgic about childhood were obviously never children.
Bill Watterson

2.
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

3.
One can love a child, perhaps, more deeply than one can love another adult, but it is rash to assume that the child feels any love in return.
Orwell, George

4.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

5.
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

6.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

7.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

8.
There are three ways to get something done: do it yourself, employ someone, or forbid your children to do it.
Crane, Monta

9.
Children also have artistic ability, and there is wisdom in there having it! The more helpless they are, the more instructive are the examples they furnish us; and they must be preserved free of corruption from an early age.
Klee, Paul

10.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

11.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

12.
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

13.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

14.
The wildest colts make the best horses.
Plutarch

15.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

16.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

17.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

18.
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

19.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

20.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

21.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

22.
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

23.
It needs courage to let our children go, but we are trustees and stewards and have to hand them back to life--to God. As the old saying puts it: What I gave I have. We have to love them and lose them.
Torrie, Alfred

24.
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

25.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

26.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

27.
Always be nice to your children because they are the ones who will choose your rest home.
Phyllis Diller

28.
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

29.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

30.
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

31.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

32.
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

33.
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.

34.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

35.
Children are poor men's riches.

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

45.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

46.
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

47.
Let your children be as so many flowers, borrowed from God. If the flowers die or wither, thank God for a summer loan of them.
Rutherford, Samuel

48.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.

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