Quotations About Babies That Celebrate Their Magic

Our new baby quotes are universal. Quotations about babies come from everyone—from the pillars of academia to the streets of the city, from south to north, from moms, dads, grandparents and even baby-less writers. These baby quotations can bring a smile to the sourest face.

Part of the magic these new baby quotes evoke is the mystery of a new-born child. No one can know what that little person will become. The process of discovering this person is one of the miracles of life.
