My mother had a slender, small body, but a large heart - a heart so large that everybody's joys found welcome in it, and hospitable accommodation.

-Mark Twain

For thee, little boy, will the earth pour forth gifts
All untilled, give thee gifts
First the wandering ivy and foxglove
Then colocasia and the laughing acanthus
Uncalled the goats will come home with their milk
No longer need the herds fear the lion
Thy cradle itself will bloom with sweet flowers.

-Excerpt from the poem For The Little Boy, by Virgil (70-19 BC)

Inspirational Pregnancy Quotes

Nobody's gonna kill your dreams

Or tell you how to live your life

There'll always be people to make it hard for a while

But you'll change their heads when they see you smile



The times you were born in may not have been the best

But you can make the times to come better than the rest

I know you will be honest if you can't always be kind

Oh yes, sweet darling

So glad you are a child of mine

-Excerpt from the song Child of Mine by Carole King

Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.
-Meryl Streep
