Babies are such a nice way to start people.
Not flesh of my flesh, nor bone of my bone, but still miraculously my own. Never forget for a single minute, you didn't grow under my heart, but in it.
There was a never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
A baby is an alimentary canal with a loud voice at one end a no responsibility at the other.
In the sheltered simplicity of the first days after a baby is born, one sees again the magical closed circle, the miraculous sense of two people existing only for each other.
-Anne Morrow Lindbergh
Making the decision to have a child--It's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
Father asked us what was God's noblest work. Anna said men, but I said babies. Men are often bad; babies never are.
-Louisa May Alcott
Every child born into the world is a new thought of God, an ever-fresh and radiant possibility.
-Kate Douglas Wiggin
