  • “A baby is as pure as an angel and as fresh as a blooming flower.”Debasish Mridha
  • “I love these little people; and it is not a slight thing when they, who are so fresh from God, love us.”Charles Dickens

  • “Babies cry at birth because it is the first time they experience separation from love.”Kamand Kojouri
  • “It’s a good thing babies don’t give you a lot of time to think. You fall in love with them and when you realize how much they love you back, life is very simple.”Anita Diamant
  • “The children we bring into the world are small replicas of ourselves and our husbands; the pride and joy of grandfathers and grandmothers. We dream of being mothers, and for most of us that dreams are realized naturally. For this is the Miracle of Life.”Azelene Williams
  • “A baby is a dancing joy of life.”
  • Debasish Mridha
  • “I know now why God gave us babies. They require constant attention, of course. They make messes and disturb the peace, but their cuteness and smiles are something the only reminder of God we have in the house.”Ann Rinaldi
  • “For me, this baby was the most precious thing I had ever had. He was my treasure, my joy, my world, my everything now.”Preeti Shenoy

  • “The only creatures that are evolved enough to convey pure love are dogs and infants.”Johnny Depp
  • “You know what the great thing about babies is? They are like little bundles of hope. Like the future in a basket.”Lish McBride
  • “When a child is born, its sense-organs are brought in contact with the outer world. The waves of sound, heat, and light beat upon its feeble body, its sensitive nerve fibres quiver, the muscles contract and relax in obedience: a gasp, a breath, and in this act a marvelous little engine, of inconceivable delicacy and complexity of construction, unlike any on earth, is hitched to the wheel-work of the Universe.”Nikola Tesla
  • “Babies are the buds of life ready to bloom like a fresh flower to refresh humanity.”Debasish Mridha
  • “Please don’t wait until the doctors tell you that you are going to have a baby to begin to take care of it. It is already there. Whatever you are, whatever you do, your baby will get it. Anything you eat, any worries that are on your mind will be for him or her. Can you tell me that you cannot smile? Think of the baby, and smile for him, for her, for the future generations. Please don’t tell me that a smile and your sorrow just don’t go together. It’s your sorrow, but what about your baby? It’s not his sorrow, it’s not her sorrow.”Thich Nhat Hanh.
  • “Babies are living dolls with dancing smiles that come from the stars to still our hearts.”Debasish Mridha
  • “In my experience nursing is waiting. The mother becomes the background against which the baby lives, becomes time. I used to exist against the continuity of time. Then I became the baby’s continuity, a background of ongoing time for him to live against. I was the warmth and milk that was always there for him, the agent of comfort that was always there for him. My body, my life, became the landscape of my son’s life. I am no longer merely a thing living in the world; I am a world.”Sarah Manguso
  • “In infancy, our blood is strong and our energy is plentiful. Mind and body, thought and action are one. Everything we do is in harmony with the natural order. The infant is not affected by things that happen around him. Virtue and ethics cannot restrain his will. Naked and free of social conventions, he follows the natural path of the heart.”Liezi
  • “The baby’s body lay in a bassinet. He was the size of a half loaf of bread, his bones light as a bird’s and stretched with thin skin.”Jodi Picoult
  • “Our baby gives herself to me completely. There is no hesitation, no reservation, no holding back, no coldness, no craft, no tremor or fear in her love. Although our relationship may encompass tears, frustration, even fury, it is an utterly reliable bond. As it grows, her love is literally unadulterated. Her love is wholly of the child, pure in its essence as children are in their direct passions. Children do not love wisely, but perhaps they love the best of all.”Louise Erdrich
  • “Babies are such a nice way to start people.”Don Herold
  • “Babies are soft. Anyone looking at them can see the tender, fragile skin and know it for the rose-leaf softness that invites a finger’s touch. But when you live with them and love them, you feel the softness going inward, the round-cheeked flesh wobbly as custard, the boneless splay of the tiny hands. Their joints are melted rubber, and even when you kiss them hard, in the passion of loving their existence, your lips sink down and seem never to find bone. Holding them against you, they melt and mold, as though they might at any moment flow back into your body.”Diana Gabaldon
  • “You may hate being pregnant, but the minute the baby is born, she is God’s precious child, given to you as a gift.”Sandra Dallas
  • “Children see magic because they look for it.”Christopher Moore
  • “Don’t stand unmoving outside the door of a crying baby whose only desire is to touch you. Go to your baby. Go to your baby a million times. Demonstrate that people can be trusted, that the environment can be trusted, that we live in a benign universe.”Peggy O’Mara
  • “Everybody needs some time to rejuvenate, refresh, recharge and begin again. Seeing babies face is the best way to relax, refresh, rejuvenate and recharge.”Revathi Sankaran
  • “Love can change a person the way a parent can change a baby- awkwardly, and often with a great deal of mess.”Lemony Snicket
  • “The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby’s grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.”Dave Barry
  • “A mother does not become pregnant in order to provide employment to medical people. Giving birth is an ecstatic jubilant adventure not available to males. It is a woman’s crowning creative experience of a lifetime.”John Stevenson
  • “We all started off this way – small little bundles of joy. Me, Aires, Noah, Lila, Isaiah and even Beth. At some point, someone held us and loved us.”Katie McGarry
  • “It’s never the right time to have kids, but it’s always the right time for screwing. God’s not dumb. He knows how it works.”Justin Halpern
  • “As babies we’re born blank sheets of paper. Not a single mark. As we grow older, lines form, then colors and patterns. Before long that paper is all sorts of brilliant. Like a kaleidoscope, no two exactly alike.”Shannon Wiersbitzky
  • “Babies used to make me nervous, but these squirmy things are awesome once you’ve read the manual.”David Z. Hirsch
  • “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
  • “Abort the thought, save the baby”Chinonye J. Chidolue
  • “The tots both started laughing. On the same day. I’m now obsessed with getting them to do it. Babies laughing is like opium.”Neil Patrick Harris
  • “Every child comes with the message that God is not yet discouraged of man.”
  • Rabindranath Tagore
  • “The groove is so mysterious. We’re born with it and we lose it and the world seems to split apart before our eyes into stupid and cool. When we get it back, the world unifies around us, and both stupid and cool fall away. I am grateful to those who are keepers of the groove. The babies and the grandmas who hang on to it and help us remember when we forget that any kind of dancing is better than no dancing at all.”Lynda Barry
  • “[On how to calm a crying baby] You lay your hand against his skin and just rub his back. Blow into his ear. Press that baby up against your own skin and walk outside with him, where the night air will surround him, and moonlight falls on his face. Whistle, maybe. Dance. Hum. Pray.”Joyce Maynard
  • “Perfection only exists in babies and pastries.”Gayle Wray
  • “For having a baby’s sweet face so close to your own, for so long a time as it takes to nurse ’em, is a great tonic for a sad soul.”Erica Eisdorfer
  • “When the baby is born, all that pain (that was endured) vanishes in an instant. Love for that tiny baby makes one forget the pain, the fear. And as I’ve said before, love between mother and child is the highest experience, the closest to divine love.”
  • Hope Bradford
  • “And I learned what is obvious to a child. That life is simply a collection of little lives, each lived one day at a time. That each day should be spent finding beauty in flowers and poetry and talking to animals. That a day spent with dreaming and sunsets and refreshing breezes cannot be bettered.”Nicholas Sparks
  • “There is not much you can say about a baby unless you are talking with its father or another mother or nurse; infants are not part of the realm of ordinary language, talk is inadequate to them as they are inadequate to talk.”Ursula K. Le Guin
  • “Newborn babies can’t do much on their own – they can’t eat or walk or talk on the phone. But every parent is sure their creation is without a doubt a tremendous sensation.”Jennifer Davis
  • “The trouble with babies is that they are made like a safe – no way to see what’s inside and no guarantee that the effort will be worth the trouble. Spin the numbers, crack the code, but the door won’t swing open. Babies are safes on time-delay. It takes years for the door to swing open, and even when it does, the best minds are undecided as to the value of the contents”Jeanette Winterson
  • “To profoundly understand a baby, you must first be a mother.”Debasish Mridha
  • “A first child is your own best foot forward, and how you do cheer those little feet as they strike out. You examine every turn of flesh for precocity and crow it to the world. But the last one: the baby who trails her scent like a flag of surrender through your life when there will be no more coming after – oh, that’ s love by a different name.”Barbara Kingsolver
  • “An infant no more than six weeks old – a person in the still floppy, stunned by visual stimuli, sucking, arm and foot waving, grunting, grimacing phase of life. How I had loved that stage in my own Daisy’s path of becoming.”Siri Hustvedt
  • “New days should be greeted like new lovers and babies toddling along a table looking back to make sure we’re watching.”Darnell Lamont Walker
  • “I dream of giving birth to a child who will ask, Mother, what was war?”Eve Merriam
  • “A baby boy has a special way of bringing out the man in his father and the little boy in his grandfather.”Tanya Masse
  • “The most out-there thing I’m saying is, ‘Don’t have babies. Don’t get married and have kids. Have a larger life than that.”Roseanne Barr
  • “It’s important for us to explain to our nation that life is important. It’s not only life of babies, but it’s life of children living in, you know, the dark dungeons of the Internet.”George W. Bush
  • “There’s nothing more contagious than the laughter of young children; it doesn’t even have to matter what they’re laughing about.”Criss Jami
  • “When my friends began to have babies and I came to comprehend the heroic labor it takes to keep one alive, the constant exhausting tending of a being who can do nothing and demands everything, I realized that my mother had done all of these things for me before I remembered. I was fed; I was washed; I was clothed; I was taught to speak and given a thousand other things, over and over again, hourly, daily, for years. She gave me everything before she gave me nothing.”Rebecca Solnit
  • “That’s why babies cry so much. All of a sudden having a body is a lot to deal with.”Ron Koertge

  • “Having a baby is part of a woman’s life, and it is surely a great waste to be afraid of life.”Joan Lowery Nixon
