A Quote by Arthur Guiterman on babies, day, disease, garden, hope, play, proof, and purity

Strictly Germ-Proof The Antiseptic Baby and the Prophylactic Pup Were playing in the garden when the Bunny gambolled up; They looked upon the creature with a loathing undisguised; It wasn't disinfected and it wasn't sterilised. They said it was microbic and a hotbed of disease; They steamed it in a vapor of a thousand-odd degrees; They froze it in a freezer that was cold as banished hope And washed it in permanganate with carbolated soap. In sulphurated hydrogen they steeped its wiggly ears; They trimmed its frisky whiskers with a pair of hard-boiled shears; They donned their rubber mittens and they took it by the hand And 'lected it a member of the Fumigated Band. There's not a micrococcus in the garden where they play; They bathe in pure iodoform a dozen times a day; And each imbibes his rations from a hygienic cup- The Bunny and The Baby and The Prophylactic Pup.

Arthur Guiterman (1871 - 1943)

Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do. Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.

A Quote by Alice B. Toklas on babies, emotion, garden, motherhood, and wonder

The first gatherings of the garden in May of salads, radishes and herbs made me feel like a mother about her baby - how could anything so beautiful be mine. And this emotion of wonder filled me for each vegetable as it was gathered every year. There is nothing that is comparable to it, as satisfactory or as thrilling, as gathering the vegetables one has grown.

A Quote by Algernon Charles Swinburne on angels, babies, heaven, and kiss

A baby's feet, like sea-shells pink Might tempt, should heaven see meet, An angel's lips to kiss, we think, A baby's feet.

A Quote by Alanis Morissette on babies

in

I feel drunk but I'm sober I'm young and I'm underpaid I'm tired but I'm working, yeah. I care but I'm restless I'm here but I'm really gone I'm wrong and I'm sorry, baby. What it all comes down to Is that everything's gonna be quite all right.
