"The world shines bright with endless possibilities
each time a little child is born."
"Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky."
"Infancy conforms to nobody: all conform to it, so that one babe commonly makes four or five out of the adults who prattle and play to it."
Ralph Waldo Emerson
"Having a baby is like falling in love again,
both with your husband and your child."
"If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle."
Vincent van Gogh
