Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
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

2.
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.

3.
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

4.
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

5.
Children might or might not be a blessing, but to create them and then fail them was surely damnation.
Lois McMaster Bujold

6.
Winning children (who appear so guileless) are children who have discovered how effective charm and modesty and a delicately calculated spontaneity are in winning what they want.
Wilder, Thornton

7.
Few parents nowadays pay any regard to what their children say to them. The old-fashioned respect for the young is fast dying out.
Wilde, Oscar

8.
The best way to keep children at home is to make the home a pleasant atmosphere and let the air out of the tires.
Parker, Dorothy

9.
Level with your child by being honest. Nobody spots a phony quicker than a child.
Mary MacCracken

10.
The distinctive character of a child is to always live in the tangible present.
Ruskin, John

11.
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

12.
Who is not attracted by bright and pleasant children, to prattle, to creep, and to play with them?
Epictetus

13.
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

14.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

15.
Children enjoy the present because they have neither a past nor a future.
La Bruyere, Jean De

16.
Too often when give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve.
Lewin, Roger

17.
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

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

19.
It takes three to make a child.
Cummings, E.E. (Edward. E.)

20.
What is a neglected child? He is a child not planned for, not wanted. Neglect begins, therefore, before he is born.
Buck, Pearl S.

21.
Children are a great comfort to us in our old age, and they help us reach it faster too.

22.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

23.
It is dangerous to confuse children with angels.
Fyfe, David

24.
Your children need your presence more than your presents.
Jackson, Jesse

25.
Facing a mirror you see merely your own countenance; facing your child you finally understand how everyone else has seen you.
Daniel Raeburn

26.
We must teach our children to dream with their eyes open.
Edwards, Harry

27.
Birds in their little nest agree; and 'Tis a shameful sight, when children of one family fall out, and chide, and fight.
Watts, Isaac

28.
Those who have lost an infant are never, in a way, without an infant.
Hunt, Leigh

29.
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

30.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

31.
It's fun being a kid.
Angier, Bradford Arthur

32.
Childhood sometimes does pay a second visit to man; youth never.
Jameson, Anna

33.
Children aren't happy with nothing to ignore, and that's what parents were created for.
Nash, Ogden

34.
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

35.
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.
Friedan, Betty

36.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

37.
Children need models rather than critics.
Joubert, Joseph

38.
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

39.
Hugs can do great amounts of good -- especially for children.
Diana, Princess of Wales

40.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

41.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

42.
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

43.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

44.
We worry about what a child will be tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
Tauscher, Stacia

45.
Better a snotty child than his nose wiped off.
Proverb, English

46.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

47.
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

48.
When you put faith, hope and love together, you can raise positive kids in a negative world.
Ziglar, Zig
