Baby Nursery Furniture

Famous quotes containing the words furniture, baby and/or nursery:

    A daughter of Eve ... had better be fifty leagues off—or in her warm bed—or playing with a case-knife—or any thing you please—than make a man the object of her attention, when the house and all the furniture is her own.
    Laurence Sterne (1713–1768)

    The trouble with grown-ups was that under the magnificent shell of adulthood, just under,
    Waited the baby full of tantrums.
    Gwendolyn Brooks (b. 1917)

    ... we have broken down the self-respecting spirit of man with nursery tales and priestly threats, and we dare to assert, that in proportion as we have prostrated our understanding and degraded our nature, we have exhibited virtue, wisdom, and happiness, in our words, our actions, and our lives!
    Frances Wright (1795–1852)
