A Quote by Steven Wright on babies, day, and hospitals

Two babies were born on the same day at the same hospital. They lay there and looked at each other. Their families came and took them away. Eighty years later, by a bizarre coincidence, they lay in the same hospital, on their deathbeds, next to each other. One of them looked at the other and said, "So. What did you think?"

A Quote by Sir James Matthew Barrie on babies, beginning, laughter, and time

When the first baby laughed for the first time, the laugh broke into a thousand pieces and they all went skipping about, and that was the beginning of fairies. And now when every new baby is born its first laugh becomes a fairy. So there ought to be one fairy for every boy or girl.

Babies haven't any hair; Old men's heads are just as bare; Between the cradle and the grave Lies a haircut and a shave.

A Quote by Robertson Davies on babies, cleverness, labor, men, women, and world

Women say . . . that if men had to have babies there would soon be no babies in the world. . . . I have sometimes wished that some clever man would actually have a baby in some new labor-saving way; then all men could take it up, and one of the oldest taunts in the world would be stilled forever.

A Quote by Robert Anson Heinlein on babies, children, learning, money, and needs

Touch is the most fundamental sense. A baby experiences it, all over, before he is born and long before he learns to use sight, hearing, or taste, and no human ever ceases to need it. Keep your children short on pocket money but long on hugs

A Quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson on babies, country, language, learning, and travel

No man should travel until he has learned the language of the country he visits. Otherwise he voluntarily makes himself a great baby - so helpless and so ridiculous.
