Famous quotes containing the word toys:

    Most baby books also tend to romanticize the mother who stays at home, as if she really spends her entire day doing nothing but beaming at the baby and whipping up educational toys from pieces of string, rather than balancing cooing time with laundry, cleaning, shopping and cooking.
    Susan Chira (20th century)

    Man hath still either toys or care:
    But hath no root, nor to one place is tied,
    But ever restless and irregular,
    About this earth doth run and ride.
    He knows he hath a home, but scarce knows where;
    He says it is so far,
    That he has quite forgot how to go there.
    Henry Vaughan (1622–1695)

    For should your hands drop white and empty
    All the toys of the world would break.
    John Frederick Nims (b. 1913)
