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

Children Motivational Quotes



Best Quotes about Children

1.
A child miseducated is a child lost.
Kennedy, John F.

2.
Above all, though, children are linked to adults by the simple fact that they are in process of turning into them. For this they may be forgiven much. Children are bound to be inferior to adults, or there is no incentive to grow up.
Larkin, Philip

3.
I would be the most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.
Anna Quindlen

4.
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

5.
Children's talent to endure stems from their ignorance of alternatives.
Angelou, Maya

6.
Kids use to ask where they came from, now they tell you where to go

7.
There is not so much comfort in having children as there is sorrow in parting with them.
Proverb

8.
You see much more of your children once they leave home.
Ball, Lucille

9.
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

10.
A child learns to discard his ideals, whereas a grown-up never wears out his short pants.
Kraus, Karl

11.
For success in training children the first condition is to become as a child oneself, but this means no assumed childishness, no condescending baby-talk that the child immediately sees through and deeply abhors. What it does mean is to be as entirely and simply taken up with the child as the child himself is absorbed by his life.
Key, Ellen

12.
Outings are so much more fun when we can savor them through the children's eyes.
Lawana Blackwell

13.
Learning to dislike children at an early age saves a lot of expense and aggravation later in life.
Robert Byrne

14.
Behold the child, by nature's kindly law, pleased with a rattle, tickled with a straw.
Pope, Alexander

15.
It goes without saying that you should never have more children than you have car windows.
Bombeck, Erma

16.
A child is a beam of sunlight from the Infinite and Eternal, with possibilities of virtue and vice- but as yet unstained.
Abbott, Lyman

17.
You can learn many things from children. How much patience you have, for instance.
Jones, Franklin P.

18.
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

19.
Children and drunks always speak the truth.
Proverb

20.
Once you bring life into the world, you must protect it. We must protect it by changing the world.
Wiesel, Elie

21.
Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.
Howe, Edgar Watson

22.
There is a sanctity involved with bringing a child into this world: it is better than bombing one out of it.
Baldwin, James

23.
Your children will see what you're all about by what you live rather than what you say.
Dyer, Wayne

24.
There's no point in being grown up if you cant be childish sometimes.
Who, Dr.

25.
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

26.
Children are unpredictable. You never know what inconsistency they're going to catch you in next.
Jones, Franklin P.

27.
There is no finer investment for any community than putting milk into babies.
Churchill, Winston

28.
There are few places outside his own play where a child can contribute to the world in which he finds himself. His world: dominated by adults who tell him what to do and when to do it --benevolent tyrants who dispense gifts to their good subjects and punishment to their bad ones, who are amused at the cleverness of children and annoyed by their stupidities.
Spolin, Viola

29.
What is done to children, they will do to society.
Menninger, Karl A.

30.
When children are doing nothing, they are doing mischief.
Fielding, Henry

31.
There never was a child so lovely, but his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Emerson, Ralph Waldo

32.
Adults are obsolete children.
Seuss, Dr.

33.
The best way to make children good is to make them happy.
Wilde, Oscar

34.
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

35.
How sharper than a serpent's tooth it is to have a thankless child.
Shakespeare, William

36.
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

37.
A society in which adults are estranged from the world of children, and often from their own childhood, tends to hear children's speech only as a foreign language, or as a lie. Children have been treated. as congenital fibbers, fakers and fantasisers.
Campbell, Beatrix

38.
Youth isn't always all it's touted to be.
Lawana Blackwell

39.
Children have never been very good at listening to their elders, but they have never failed to imitate them.
Baldwin, James

40.
Children are apt to live up to what you believe of them.
Johnson, Lady Bird

41.
The thing that impresses me the most about America is the way parents obey their children.
King Edward VIII

42.
You should study not only that you become a mother when your child is born, but also that you become a child.
Dogen

43.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
Bruce Barton

44.
We in the West do not refrain from childbirth because we are concerned about the population explosion or because we feel we cannot afford children, but because we do not like children.
Greer, Germaine

45.
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

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

47.
Where children are, there is the golden age.
Novalis

48.
Ignorance... is a painless evil; so, I should think, is dirt, considering the merry faces that go along with it.
Eliot, George

49.
Children are the only form of immortality that we can be sure of.
Peter Ustinov

50.
Children are completely egoistic; they feel their needs intensely and strive ruthlessly to satisfy them.
Freud, Sigmund
