Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
Don't limit a child to your own learning, for he was born in another time.
Rabbinical Saying

2.
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

3.
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

4.
I take my children everywhere, but they always find their way back home.
Robert Orben

5.
Viewing the child solely as an immature person is a way of escaping comforting him.
Moustakas, Clark

6.
Listen to the desires of your children. Encourage them and then give them the autonomy to make their own decision.
Waitley, Denis

7.
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

8.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

9.
Never have children, only grandchildren.
Gore Vidal

10.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

11.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

12.
A rich child often sits in a poor mothers lap.
Proverb

13.
A child of five would understand this. Send someone to fetch a child of five.
Groucho Marx

14.
You don't pay back your parents. You can't. The debt you owe them gets collected by your children, who hand it down in turn. It's a sort of entailment. Or if you don't have children of the body, it's left as a debt to your common humanity. Or to your God, if you possess or are possessed by one.
Lois McMaster Bujold

15.
We do our children no favour by keeping them near, coddling them, or showing them off to adult visitors. Not that a nursemaid does not sometimes spoil them. But the greatest favour we can do our children is to give visible example of love and esteem to our spouse. As they grow up, they may then look forward to maturity so they too can find such love.
Eucharista Ward

16.
The test of the morality of a society is what it does for its children.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer

17.
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

18.
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

19.
Too many parents are not on spanking terms with their children.

20.
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

21.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

22.
Children are living jewels dropped unsustained from heaven.
Pollok, Robert

23.
Anyone who uses the phrase'easy as taking candy from a baby'has never tried taking candy from a baby.

24.
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

25.
We inevitably doom our children to failure and frustration when we try to set their goals for them.
Lair, Dr. Jess

26.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

27.
Americans, indeed, often seem to be so overwhelmed by their children that they'll do anything for them except stay married to the co-producer.
Whitehorn, Katharine

28.
You know that children are growing up when they start asking questions that have answers.
John J. Plomp

29.
It is not giving children more that spoils them; it is giving them more to avoid confrontation.
John Gray

30.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

31.
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

32.
If help and salvation are to come, they can only come from the children, for the children are the makers of men.
Montessori, Maria

33.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

34.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

35.
What the vast majority of American children needs is to stop being pampered, stop being indulged, stop being chauffeured, stop being catered to. In the final analysis it is not what you do for your children but what you have taught them to do for themselves that will make them successful human beings.
Landers, Ann

36.
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

37.
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

38.
If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.
Norman Douglas

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

40.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

41.
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

42.
Children are our most valuable natural resource.
Hoover, Herbert Clark

43.
I must take issue with the term'a mere child,'for it has been my invariable experience that the company of a mere child is infinitely preferable to that of a mere adult.
Fran Lebowitz

44.
The countenances of children, like those of animals, are masks, not faces, for they have not yet developed a significant profile of their own.
Auden, W. H.

45.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

46.
The reason grandparents and grandchildren get along so well is that they have a common enemy.
Sam Levenson

47.
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

48.
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

49.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

50.
How little is the promise of the child fulfilled in the man.
Ovid
