Famous quotes containing the words child and/or deaf:

    A name with meaning could bring up a child,
    Taking the child out of the parents’ hands.
    Better a meaningless name, I should say,
    As leaving more to nature and happy chance.
    Name children some names and see what you do.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Celebrity is a mask that eats into the face. As soon as one is aware of being “somebody,” to be watched and listened to with extra interest, input ceases, and the performer goes blind and deaf in his overanimation. One can either see or be seen.
    John Updike (b. 1932)
