Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
If you have a great passion it seems that the logical thing is to see the fruit of it, and the fruit are children.
Polanski, Roman

2.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is To have a thankless child!
William Shakespeare

3.
Wen I was a child, I spoke as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man I put away my childish things. [I Corinthians]
Bible

4.
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

5.
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

6.
The best way to keep children home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant--and let the air out of the tires.
Dorothy Parker

7.
Never have children, only grand children.
Vidal, Gore

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

10.
There was a time when we expected nothing of our children but obedience, as opposed to the present, when we expect everything of them but obedience.
Anatole Broyard

11.
With children... it is a fact that most parents criticize children more than they laud or congratulate them. We tend to be quick to criticize, slow to praise. We should be careful to keep the praise and the expectations far ahead of the criticism.

12.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

13.
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

14.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

15.
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

16.
For many children, joy comes as the result of mining something unique and wondrous about themselves from some inner shaft.
Cottle, Thomas J.

17.
My children cause me the most exquisite suffering of which I have any experience. It is the suffering of ambivalence: the murderous alternation between bitter resentment and raw-edged nerves, and blissful gratification and tenderness. Sometimes I seem to myself, in my feelings toward these tiny guiltless beings, a monster of selfishness and intolerance.
Rich, Adrienne

18.
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

19.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

20.
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

21.
If your parents never had children, chances are you won't, either.
Dick Cavett

22.
We've had bad luck with our kids -- they've all grown up.
Morley, Christopher

23.
Children's liberation is the next item on our civil rights shopping list.
Pogrebin, Letty Cottin

24.
Foolishness is bound in the heart of a child; but the rod of correction shall drive it far from him. [Proverbs 22:15]
Bible

25.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

26.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

27.
Do not handicap your children by making their lives easy.
Long, Lazarus

28.
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.

29.
The best way for a man to train up a child in the way he should go is to travel that way himself.

30.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

31.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

32.
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

33.
That's the funny thing about havin'a kid. They come with their own set of problems; make everything else you were worried about seem kinda silly.
Greg Garcia

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

35.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

36.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.

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

38.
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

39.
Even a minor event in the life of a child is an event of that child's world and thus a world event.
Bachelard, Gaston

40.
Let the child's first lesson be obedience, and the second will be what thou wilt.
Franklin, Benjamin

41.
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

42.
But the child's sob curses deeper in the silence than the strong man in his wrath!
Browning, Elizabeth Barrett

43.
Instead of needing lots of children, we need high-quality children.
Mead, Margaret

44.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

45.
Children are given to us to discourage our better emotions.
Saki

46.
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

47.
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

48.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

49.
What you don't know takes a lot of explaining to the children.

50.
A little less worry over the child and a bit more concern about the world we make for the child to live in.
Meyer, Adolph
