BABIES
[ Also see Age Babyhood Beginnings Birth Children Death of Babies Family Infancy ]

A babe is a mother's anchor.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Sweet sleep, with soft down
  Weave thy brows an infant crown!
    Sweet sleep, angel mild,
      Hover o'er my happy child.
      - William Blake

It is curious to see how a self-willed, haughty girl, who sets her father and mother and all at defiance, and can't be managed by anybody, at once finds her master in a baby. Her sister's child will strike the rock and set all her affections flowing.
      - Charles Buxton

Good Christian people, here lies for you an inestimable loan; take all heed thereof, in all carefulness, employ it: with high recompense, or else with heavy penalty, will it one day be required back.
      - Thomas Carlyle

Incipient beings.
      - Thomas Carlyle

We spend the first twelve months of our children's lives teaching them to walk and talk and the next twelve telling them to sit down and shut up.
      - Phyllis Diller

Welcome to the parents the puny struggler, strong in his weakness, his little arms more irresistible than the soldier's, his lips touched with persuasion which Chatham and Pericles in manhood had not. His unaffected lamentations when he lifts up his voice on high, or, more beautiful, the sobbing child--the face all liquid grief, as he tries to swallow his vexation--soften all hearts to pity and to mirthful and clamorous compassion.
      - Ralph Waldo Emerson

It is well for us that we are born babies in intellect. Could we understand half what mothers say and do to their infants, we should be filled with a conceit of our own importance, which would render us insupportable through life. Happy the boy whose mother is tired of talking nonsense to him before he is old enough to know the sense of it.
      - Augustus William Hare

Babies are such a nice way to start people.
      - Don Herold

The coarsest father gains a new impulse to labor from the moment of his baby's birth; he scarcely sees it when awake, and yet it is with him all the time. Every stroke he strikes is for his child. New social aims, new moral motives, come vaguely up to him.
      - Thomas Wentworth Higginson

Bent o'er her babe, her eye dissolved in dew;
  The big drops, mingling with the milk he drew.
      - John Langhorne

Fragile beginnings of a mighty end.
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

Of all the joys that brighten suffering earth, what joy is welcomed like a new-born child?
      - Lady Caroline Sheridan Norton (Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton)

The little babe up in his arms he bent, who with sweet pleasure and bold blandishment 'gan smile.
      - Edmund Spenser

A link between angels and men.
      - Martin Farquhar Tupper

Heaven lies about us in our infancy.
      - William Wordsworth
