Carl Sandburg quote: Never will a time come when the most marvellous recent invention is as marvellous as a newborn child - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
Tyler (2014)

These poems and quotes about babies are all positive, inspirational words of wisdom and love from known sources. The words from unknown sources are on the Sayings About Babies page.

I have always thought babies are an absolute joy and each one is a perfect, unique miracle. The most precious moment of my life was when my first baby was placed in my arms after the birth. The immense feeling of love that I felt was indescribable, even now, forty plus years later, I still treasure that moment, I just think about the weight of that little bundle of love in my arms and I am uplifted. I also felt the same with my other children, but I think the first sticks in your mind more, because it’s a new experience.

I am now blessed with ten grandchildren to adore, each one is yet another miracle and, along with their parents, are the greatest treasures of my life.

Babies are thinking and attracting before they are speaking. Even though you are only months old in your physical body, you are a very old and wise Creator, focused in that baby’s body.

If your baby is beautiful and perfect, never cries or fusses, sleeps on schedule and burps on demand, an angel all the time… you’re the Grandma.
Teresa Bloomingdale

Grandad has a long and earnest conversation with his grandchild. He says, “You are noisy and wiggly and will be sent back if you don’t pull yourself together.” The baby smiles complacently. She has him exactly where she wants him.
Pam Brown

The baby rises to its feet, takes a step, is overcome with triumph and joy – and falls flat on its face. It is a pattern for all that is to come! But learn from the bewildered baby. Lurch to your feet again. You’ll make the sofa in the end.
Pam Brown

All babies are pure love.
Lorna Byrne 1953

Although a newborn baby is pure love, it is unable to radiate this love out; it hasn’t learnt this yet, just as it hasn’t learnt to walk. The love is inside it, but it doesn’t know how to give it out. When a mother (or someone else) reaches for the baby with love, the force of love from the mother draws the baby’s love out.
Lorna Byrne 1953

As newborn babies, we know we are perfect and deserving of love and feel pure love for ourselves and everyone around us.
Lorna Byrne 1953

Every newborn baby I see glows with love, a glow I see coming from the Soul.
Lorna Byrne 1953

The bonding with a new baby can help people to release love unconsciously.
Lorna Byrne 1953

The helplessness, vulnerability and perfection of a new baby frequently helps parents and grandparents to learn to love themselves and others.
Lorna Byrne 1953

We are all born pure love. As a baby in our mothers womb, we all love unconditionally. Everyone of us, regardless of whether we are wanted, or whether our mums have an easy pregnancy or labour, glow with pure love when we are born.
Lorna Byrne 1953

C Quotes About Babies

It is the nature of babies to be in bliss.

Having a child is surely the most beautifully irrational act that two people in love can commit.
Bill Cosby 1937

Flowers are words which even a baby can understand.
Arthur C. Coxe

Some people have got advice, some people have got horror stories. I like people that look you in the eye with a glow and say “It’s gonna be cool.”

There’s something that just happens to you when you have a baby, and you look at their eyes for the first time when you’re holding them.
Hilary Duff 1987

Spend some time observing babies. They don’t work; they poop in their pants, and they have no goals other than to expand, grow and explore this amazing world. Be like that baby you once were, in terms of being joyful.

Shines the peace of all being
Without cloud, in its eyes;
And the sum of the world
In soft miniature lies

G Quotes About Babies

If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it.

Vincent van Gogh 1853 – 1890

Letter From Your Newborn
Dear Mummy and Daddy,
No matter what happens between us, during my childhood I will love you unconditionally.


You are my guide, my support, my lifetime anchor…
for whatever becomes of me depends on our time together.


From you I will learn what love is.
I will learn to be confident or shy, giving or selfish, loving or cruel.
I will learn what is right and wrong, who I should respect and whether I should love and respect myself.


As I come into this world, into your tender care, I am a pure, clean sponge. I will soak up every look, every touch, every thought, every word, every feeling and they will mould me into the person that I will become.


So in the days, weeks, months and years ahead – please remember that – every thought, feeling, word, touch, and look… I will absorb.


If you treat me with love, caring, respect, tolerance, forgiveness and understanding – even when I do things wrong – then I will grow up into a kind, considerate, confident, loving, responsible, happy child and adult.


But if you treat me with intolerance, uncaring, harshness, words of anger and neglect – I will be… sad.

Trina Graves

The Baby’s Help
Lips of laughter, eyes of light
Do you know your mission here?
Sent to make the old world bright
Sent us grown-up folks to cheer
Little can you understand
Playing in the sunlight there
Lips of laughter, that you make
My cross easier to bear


Golden hair and rosy cheek
Just a tiny little mite
Little can you guess the part
You are playing in my fight
Little do you know the help
You are giving me each day
Keeping faith and hope alive
Helping me along the way


Chubby hand and tippy-toe
Little do you ever dream
How you keep your daddy up
Aiding him, when it must seem
He must fail and quit the fight
But his strength returns anew
And he plunges in once more
Just because he thinks of you

Edgar A. Guest 1881 – 1959

Go forth to life, O child of earth
Still mindful of thy heav’nly birth
Thou art not here for ease, or sin
But manhood’s noble crown to win


Tho’ passion’s fires are in thy Soul
Thy spirit can their flames control
Tho’ tempters strong beset thy way
Thy spirit is more strong than they


Go on from innocence of youth
To manly purity and truth
God’s Angels still are near to save
And God Himself doth help the brave


Then forth to life, O child of earth
Be worthy of thy heav’nly birth
For noble service thou are here
Thy brothers help, thy God revere

Samuel Longfellow 1819 – 1892

A Baby’s Feet
A baby’s feet, like sea-shells pink
Might tempt, should Heaven see meet
An Angel’s lips to kiss, we think
A baby’s feet

Like rose-hued sea-flowers toward the heat
They stretch and wink
Their ten soft buds that part and meet

No flower-bells that expand and shrink
Gleam half so heavenly sweet
As shine on life’s untrodden brink
A baby’s feet

The Soul that rises with us, our life’s star
Hath had elsewhere its setting
And cometh from afar
Not in entire forgetfulness
And not in utter nakedness
But trailing clouds of glory do we come
From God, who is our home
Heaven lies about us in our infancy

William Wordsworth 1770 – 1850
