Only you can know what's true for you. I'll help you get there.
Ann Patchett
The women in the kitchen took turns making a fuss over the baby, acting like it was their job to keep her entertained until the Magi arrived. But the baby wasn't entertained. Her blue eyes were glazed over. She was staring into the middle distance, tired of everything. All this rush to make sandwiches and take in presents for a girl who was not year a year old.

B.F. Skinner
No one asks how to motivate a baby. A baby naturally explores everything it can get at, unless restraining forces have already been at work. And this tendency doesn't die out, it's wiped out.
Bernard Branson
Rejection is an opportunity for your selection.
Breeana Puttroff
He shook his head, trying to shake the convoluted thoughts loose. He couldn't worry about it right now. Not about how Thomas felt, or how Quinn did, or even how he, himself did. They were where they were, and there were things to do. First and foremost, there was a baby to deliver.
Carl Sandburg
A baby is God's opinion that life should go on. A book that does nothing to you is dead. A baby, whether it does anything to you, represents life. If a bad fire should break out in this house and I had my choice of saving the library or the babies, I would save what is alive. Never will a time come when the most marvelous recent invention is as marvelous as a newborn baby. The finest of our precision watches, the most super-colossal of our supercargo plants, don't compare with a newborn baby in the number and ingenuity of coils and springs, in the flow and change of chemical solutions, in timing devices and interrelated parts that are irreplaceable. A baby is very modern. Yet it is also the oldest of the ancients. A baby doesn't know he is a hoary and venerable antique
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Is my faith so terribly pathetic that I have diminished God to the point that I doubt His ability to survive in the very world that He came to save? Indeed, I have done exactly that. And all I need to do to beat that mentality is to remember that a baby born in a manger with every disadvantage imaginable stills lives today.
Craig D. Lounsbrough
Given the lethal enormity of sin and the inestimable value of a single soul, a baby in a manger and a man on a cross makes more sense that anything else I will ever be able to possibly imagine.
Criss Jami
It is a healthy approach not to expect persons to turn out precisely how you would have wished.
Curtis Tyrone Jones
You can't rock the boat & act like you were just trying to put a baby to sleep.
Dave Barry
The best baby-sitters, of course, are the baby's grandparents. You feel completely comfortable entrusting your baby to them for long periods, which is why most grandparents flee to Florida.
Debasish Mridha
A baby is a smiling, dancing moon in our hands just waiting to touch our hearts.
Debasish Mridha
A baby is a symbol of peace, a plot of dreams, a light of hope, and a bundle of joy.
Debasish Mridha
A baby is a beautiful, blooming, flower that can smile, sing, and dance.
Jodi Picoult
Every baby is born beautiful. It's what we project on them that makes them ugly.
Josh Malerman
Your baby is smarter than you think.

The first music I ever heard was only one hundred and sixty days after I was conceived. Da dum Da dum Da dum Have you ever heard the sound a blessing makes? This is it. The first thing I ever saw was only one hundred and eighty days after I was conceived. It was a bright light soft like clouds warm like candles. Have you ever seen the colour of a blessing? This is it. The first time I ever suffered was in the three thousand and sixty seconds after I was born. I listened for her heartbeat. I searched for her light. I cried for the first time until she was born. Have you ever known a blessing? A twin is it.
Kamand Kojouri
Babies cry at birth because it is the first time they experience separation from love.
Margaret Drabble
It was easier to ignore the consideration of paternal genes then than it would be now. We did not then consider ourselves held in the genetic trap. We thought each infant was born pure and new and holy: a gold baby, a luminous lamb. We did not know that certain forms of breast cancer were programmed and almost ineluctable, and we would not have believed you if you had told us that in our lifetime young women would be subjecting themselves to preventative mastectomies.
Michael Grant
It's time, Jack said.Breeze? Count the kids, Sam said.Brianna was back in twenty seconds. Eighty-two, boss.About a third, Jack observed. A third of what's left.Wait. Make that eighty-eight, Brianna said. And a dog.Lana, looking deeply irritated
Michael Bassey Johnson
A true friend doesn't have guts; they beat you up and later plead with you to beat them back.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
With regard to things such as independence, mental capabilities, and sexuality, a very old man is nothing but a gigantic infant with white hair and wrinkles.
Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Many of the boys and men who are regarded as immature by some females are so deemed merely because they do not want to get married someday … or soon.
Nancy S. Mure
The natural cure for sterility is a natural diet along with a home toxin detox.
Patricia Robin Woodruff
I am giving birth. I am midwife to myself. Now is a new life full of possibilities. I must be strong like a child.
Shel Silverstein
Rockabye Baby, in the treetopDont you know a treetopis no safe place to rock?And who put you up there,and your cradle too?Baby,I think someone down herehas got it in for you!
Sherman Alexie
[Or perhaps my friends should have realized that they shouldn't have left behind the FRICKING REASON FOR THEIR PROTEST!And that thought just cracked me up.]It was like my friends had walked over the backs of baby seals in order to get to the beach where they could protest against the slaughter of baby seals.
Suzy Kassem
A woman's body is a sacred temple. A work of art, and a life-giving vessel. And once she becomes a mother, her body serves as a medicine cabinet for her infant. From her milk she can nourish and heal her own child from a variety of ailments. And though women come in a wide assortment as vast as the many different types of flowers and birds, she is to reflect divinity in her essence, care and wisdom. God created a woman's heart to be a river of love, not to become a killing machine.
Toba Beta
There are words in the soul of a newborn baby, wanting and waiting to be written.
Toba Beta
Like it or not, there are people who are capable to love genuinely and kill brutally. The amazing thing about that, few of those could even sleep well like babies in the night.
Toba Beta
The baby's beauty lies on its' pure-hearted.
