A Quote by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. on babies and kindness

Hello, babies.  Welcome to Earth.  It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter.  It's wet and round and crowded.  At the outside, babies, you've got about a hundred years here.  There's only one rule that I know of, babies -- 'God damn it, you've got to be kind.'

Kurt Vonnegut (1922 -)

Now the thing about having a baby - and I can't be the first person to have noticed this - is that thereafter you HAVE it.

A Quote by Gloria Steinem on women, men, babies, failure, and success

This idea of doing it all is the enemy of equality, not the path to do it.  It's impossible to do two full-time jobs, and an impossible definition of success is just another way of making women feel like failures... Any definition of success has to include social policies that honor families and men who raise babies as much as women do.

A Quote by Akhil Sharma on reincarnation and babies

"You know why little babies weep?"

"The little babies are missing their families from their past lives.  The babies have old souls and the old souls have to shrink to become little babies.  The tears loosen their memories so they can slide away.  They cry at the life they have lost, and then they cry at everything they'll forget."

A Quote by Thich Nhat Hanh on babies, buddhism, compassion, feeling, giving, heart, jesus, kindness, mind, plants, and sacred

Feelings, whether of compassion or irritation, should be welcomed, recognized, and treated on an absolutely equal basis; because both are ourselves. The tangerine I am eating is me. The mustard greens I am planting are me. I plant with all my heart and mind. I clean this teapot with the kind of attention I would have were I giving the baby Buddha or Jesus a bath. Nothing should be treated more carefully than anything else. In mindfulness, compassion, irritation, mustard green plant, and teapot are all sacred.

A Quote by Sir Winston Leonard Spencer Churchill on babies, learning, mortality, parliament, politics, proof, statistics, and wishes

I gather, young man, that you wish to be a Member of Parliament. The first lesson that you must learn is, when I call for statistics about the rate of infant mortality, what I want is proof that fewer babies died when I was Prime Minister than when anyone else was Prime Minister. That is a political statistic.

Winston Churchill (1874 - 1965)
