Famous quotes containing the words infant mortality, rate, infant and/or mortality:

Children, once marginal and exploited figures, have moved to a position of greater protection and respect,... The historic decline in the overall death rates for children is an astonishing social fact, notwithstanding the disgraceful infant mortality figures for the poor and minorities. Like the decline in death from childbirth for women, this is a stunning achievement.
    Joseph Featherstone (20th century)

    Strange that the vanity which accompanies beauty—excusable, perhaps, when there is such great beauty, or at any rate understandable—should persist after the beauty was gone.
    Mary A. [Elizabeth, Countess Von] Arnim (1866–1941)

    Perchance not he but Nature ailed,
    The world and not the infant failed.
    It was not ripe yet to sustain
    A genius of so fine a strain,
    Who gazed upon the sun and moon
    As if he came unto his own,
    And, pregnant with his grander thought,
    Brought the old order into doubt.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)

    When I turned into a parent, I experienced a real and total personality change that slowly shifted back to the “normal” me, yet has not completely vanished. I believe the two levels are now superimposed, with an additional sprinkling of mortality intimations.
    Sonia Taitz (20th century)
