Baby

Famous quotes containing the word baby:

    It is a pleasant thing to reflect upon, and furnishes a complete answer to those who contend for the gradual degeneration of the human species, that every baby born into the world is a finer one than the last.
    Charles Dickens (1812–1870)

    For the baby suckles and there is a people made of milk for her to use. There are milk trees to hiss her on. There are milk beds in which to lie and dream of a warm room. There are milk fingers to fold and unfold. There are milk bottoms that are wet and caressed and put into their cotton.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    You are the one
    Solid the spaces lean on, envious.
    You are the baby in the barn.
    Sylvia Plath (1932–1963)
