Mark Twain

"There comes a time in every rightly constructed boy's life when he has a raging desire to go somewhere and dig for hidden treasure."

Alan Marshall Beck

"Boys are found everywhere—on top of, underneath, inside of, climbing on, swinging from, running around or jumping to. Mothers love them, little girls hate them, older sisters and brothers tolerate them, adults ignore them and Heaven protects them. A boy is Truth with dirt on its face, Beauty with a cut on its finger, Wisdom with bubble gum in its hair and the Hope of the future with a frog in its pocket."

"A boy is a magical creature—you can lock him out of your workshop, but you can't lock him out of your heart. You can get him out of your study, but you can't get him out of your mind. Might as well give up—he is your captor, your jailer, your boss and your master—a freckled-faced, pint-sized, cat-chasing bundle of noise. But when you come home at night with only the shattered pieces of your hopes and dreams, he can mend them like new with two magic words 'Hi, Dad!'"

Ralph Waldo Emerson

"There was a never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep."

Georges Courteline, La Philosophie de Georges Courteline

"One of the most obvious results of having a baby around the house is to turn two good people into complete idiots who probably wouldn't have been much worse than mere imbeciles without it."

Fran Lebowitz

"Even when freshly washed and relieved of all obvious confections, children tend to be sticky."

Anonymous

"What are little boys made of?

Frogs and snails,

And puppy dog tails,

That's what little boys are made of."

***

"To be in your child's memories tomorrow, be in his life today."

***

"Not flesh of my flesh

Nor bone of my bone,

But still miraculously my own

Never forget for a single minute,

You didn't grow under my heart,

But in it"

Barbara Christine Seifert

"A baby is a blank check made payable to the human race."

Maya Angelou

"If I have a monument in this world, it is my son."

Plato

"Of all the animals, the boy is the most unmanageable."

Carole Tabron

"A crying baby is the best form of birth control."

James Thurber

"Boys are beyond the range of anybody's sure understanding, at least when they are between the ages of 18 months and 90 years."

Frederick Leboyer

"Being touched and caressed, being massaged, is food for the infant; food as necessary as minerals, vitamins, and proteins. Deprived of this food, the name of which is love, babies would rather die. And often they do."

Charles Osgood

"Babies are always more trouble than you thought—and more wonderful."

Maureen Hawkins

"Before you were conceived I wanted you

Before you were born I loved you

Before you were here an hour I would die for you

This is the miracle of love."
