Babies

 It sometimes happens, even in the best of families, that a baby is born.  This is not necessarily cause for alarm.  The important thing is to keep your wits about you and borrow some money.  ~Elinor Goulding Smith


A baby is an angel whose wings decrease as his legs increase.  ~Author Unknown

Babies are always more trouble than you thought - and more wonderful.  ~Charles Osgood


Families with babies and families without babies are sorry for each other.  ~Ed Howe


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, the tranquil sky reflected on the face of the mother nursing her child.  ~Anne Morrow Lindbergh, Gift from the Sea, Chapter IV: Double-Sunrise


People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one.  ~Leo J. Burke


Babies are such a nice way to start people.  ~Don Herrold


Every baby needs a lap.  ~Henry Robin


Getting down on all fours and imitating a rhinoceros stops babies from crying.  (Put an empty cigarette pack on your nose for a horn and make loud "snort" noises.)  I don't know why parents don't do this more often.  Usually it makes the kid laugh.  Sometimes it sends him into shock.  Either way it quiets him down.  If you're a parent, acting like a rhino has another advantage.  Keep it up until the kid is a teenager and he definitely won't have his friends hanging around your house all the time.  ~P.J. O'Rourke


When babies look beyond you and giggle, maybe they're seeing angels.  ~Quoted in The Angels' Little Instruction Book by Eileen Elias Freeman, 1994 www.onlineexamguide.com


Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething.  ~Mark Twain, Pudd'nhead Wilson's Calendar


A baby is a blank cheque made payable to the human race.  ~Barbara Christine Seifert


Before you were born I carried you under my heart.  From the moment you arrived in this world until the moment I leave it, I will always carry you in my heart.  ~Mandy Harrison


One of the most obvious results of having a baby around the house is to turn two good people into complete idiots who probably wouldn't have been much worse than mere imbeciles without it.  ~Georges Courteline, La Philosophie de Georges Courteline


Don't ever tell the mother of a newborn that her baby's smile is just gas.  ~Jill Woodhull


...a little child, born yesterday,
A thing on mother's milk and kisses fed...
~"Hymn to Mercury" (one of the Homeric Hymns), translated from Greek by Percy Bysshe Shelley


God's interest in the human race is nowhere better evinced than in obstetrics.  ~Martin H. Fischer


A baby is God's opinion that the world should go on.  ~Carl Sandburg


If you were to open up a baby's head - and I am not for a moment suggesting that you should - you would find nothing but an enormous drool gland.  ~Dave Barry
