Famous quotes containing the words penelope leach and/or leach:

    Our day you will find that you have stopped regarding your baby as a totally unpredictable and therefore rather alarming novelty, and have begun instead to think of him as a person with tastes, preferences and characteristics of his own. When that happens you will know that he has moved on from being a “newborn” and has got himself settled into life.
    Penelope Leach (20th century)

    Loving a baby is a circular business, a kind of feedback loop. The more you give the more you get and the more you get the more you feel like giving.
    —Penelope Leach (20th century)
