A Quote by Wilbur F. Crafts on babies, god, growth, men, mistakes, parenthood, rest, silence, truth, and work

"Who made you?" a boy of ten was asked. He stood in thoughtful silence for a moment and then, measuring the length of a baby with his hands, replied: "God made me this long, and I "growed the rest." The mistake that was his in leaving out God in his growth suggests the truth that we are partly self-made men. God and parenthood and birthplace partly make us, but we must make the rest by will and work.

A Quote by Henry John Gauntlett on angels, babies, gold, paradise, purity, sleep, water, and wine

As Joseph Was A-Walking As Joseph was a-walking He heard Angels sing, "This night shall be born Our Heavenly King. "He neither shall be born In house nor in hall, Nor in the place of paradise, But in an ox-stall. "He shall not be clothed In purple nor pall; But all in fair linen, As wear babies all. "He shall not be rocked In silver nor gold, But in a wooden cradle That rocks on the mould. "He neither shall be christened In milk nor in wine, But in pure spring-well water Fresh spring from Bethine." Mary took her baby, She dressed Him so sweet, She laid Him in a manger, All there for to sleep. As she stood over Him She heard Angels sing, "Oh, bless our dear Saviour Our Heavenly King!"

A Quote by Thurgood Marshall on america, babies, challenge, children, goals, motherhood, and worth

A child born to a Black mother in a state like Mississippi . . . has exactly the same rights as a white baby born to the wealthiest person in the United States. It's not true, but I challenge anyone to say it is not a goal worth working for.

A Quote by Studs Terkel on anger, babies, delay, efficiency, hope, humanity, humor, losing, motherhood, people, quiet, sense of humor, and time

Once I was at the Atlanta airport. I was taking the train between terminals. Its a smooth, quiet train, and it was jammed when I walked in. But it was absolutely quiet except for a mechanical voice calling out the stops. The doors were about to close, a couple rushes in and the mechanical voice says, Because of late entry, the train will be delayed for 30 seconds. People were staring at the couple, they were angry, and I yelled out, George Orwell, your time has come and gone, things are so efficient we're losing our humanity and our sense of humor. Now there are three miscreants: The crowd is staring at me and at the young couple. Sitting nearby was a baby on a mothers lap. I asked the baby, What do you think about this? She laughs, and I say, A human voice at last! There's still hope!

Studs Terkel (1912 -)
