A Quote by John Edward Masefield on babies, birth, children, christ, earth, heaven, home, and joy

And he who gives a child a treat Makes joy-bells ring in Heaven's street, And he who gives a child a home Builds palaces in Kingdom come, And she who gives a baby birth Brings Saviour Christ again to Earth.

A Quote by John Kenneth Galbraith on absence, babies, and inventions

It is easy to overlook the absence of appreciable advance in an industry. Inventions that are not made, like babies that are not born, are rarely missed.

A Quote by Jack Lemmon on babies, justice, and sex

Jerry: Look at that! Look how she moves. That's just like Jell-O on springs. She must have some sort of built-in motors. I tell you, it's a whole different sex! Joe: What are you afraid of? Nobody's asking you to have a baby.

A Quote by Henry Eyring on babies, errors, impatience, religion, support, and truth

Perhaps the believer never does more disservice to religion than to support the truth with bad arguments. The impatient listener, perceiving the obvious errors, often "throws out the baby with the bath" and turns away, even from true religion.

A Quote by George Eliot on babies, beauty, beginning, justice, and order

There is one order of beauty which seems made to turn heads. . . . It is a beauty like that of kittens, or very small downy ducks making gentle rippling noises with their soft bills, or babies just beginning to toddle. . . .

George Eliot (1819 - 1880)

A Quote by George Eliot on anger, babies, beauty, beginning, intelligence, justice, men, mind, order, and women

There are various orders of beauty, causing men to make fools of themselves in various styles. . . but there is one order of beauty which seems made to turn the heads not only of men, but of all intelligent mammals, even of women. It is a beauty like that of kittens, or very small downy ducks making gentle rippling noises with their soft bills, or babies just beginning to toddle and to engage in conscious mischief - a beauty with which you can never be angry, but that you feel ready to crush for inability to comprehend the state of mind into which it throws you.

A Quote by Elizabeth Janeway on ability, babies, and power

Power is the ability not to have to please. We haven't come a long way. We've come a short way. If we hadn't come a short way, no one would be calling us "baby."
