Quote of the Day
Is the babe young? When I behold it, it seems more venerable than the oldest man.
Henry David Thoreau
The babe at first feeds upon the mother's bosom, but it is always on her heart.
Henry Ward Beecher
A woman has two smiles that an angel might envy, the smile that accepts a lover before words are uttered, and the smile that lights on the first born babe, and assures it of a mother's love.
Thomas Chandler Haliburton
A babe in the house is a well-spring of pleasure, a messenger of peace and love, a resting place for innocence on earth, a link between angels and men.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
I've personally never wanted to be 'the babe', and refuse to let vanity get in the way of my acting because I don't see my job as being a beautiful person.
Prior to Saving Private Ryan I never worked with men. I was always working with some babe, and it was always about falling in love, and it just got turned around. I'm not looking for any particular kind of story. I wait until it comes across my desk.
Babe Ruth was not afraid to strike out. And it was this fearlessness that contributed to his remarkable career.
Don't worry about it. Babe Ruth struck out on occasion, too.
Now I've had everything except for the thrill of watching Babe Ruth play.
Hopefully I can become the Babe Ruth of the World Wrestling Federation and be the champion at the same time.
Well, I'm a Harley Babe.
The current Babe Ruth of improv? Sacha Baron Cohen. He's pretty amazing.
When they told me my new-born babe was a girl, my heart was heavier than it had ever been before. Slavery is terrible for men; but it is far more terrible for women.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
She goes through the vale of death alone, each time a babe is born. As it is the right neither of man nor the state to coerce her into this ordeal, so it is her right to decide whether she will endure it.
Babe Ruth was great. I'm just lucky.
And one of the things that I learned was you can't generalise at all about a woman in a veil. You can't think you know her story, because she will confound you over and over again. She may be an engineer or a diplomat or a doctor. Or she may be an unbelievable babe with bleached hair down to her waist.
When I did 'Babe' I wanted to talk about animal rights without going through some convoluted justifications about using animal products.
I am a babe for a living.
I know what I look like. I'm not a babe who's automatically going to be the leading-lady type. I think I would always be cast as the friend. I probably tend to look crap more often than I look good. I like messing around and pulling funny faces and doing funny walks.
When my babe was born, they said it was premature. It weighed only four pounds; but God let it live.
Harriet Ann Jacobs
I wanted to dismantle the bollocks that there's a military structure to a gang, with a leader, second leader, the good looking one, first babe, second babe. It's far more arbitrary than that and their values shouldn't be romanticised. They aren't something you want to sign up to.
I don't find offensive that I'm being labelled a babe by blokes. I'm absolutely flattered.
We have an obligation to spread amateur baseball both at home and abroad. Building up the game at all levels - Little League, Babe Ruth Leagues, the colleges - is in our own self-interest. That's where the pool of talent is - and also of fans.
A. Bartlett Giamatti
I was never the 'babe,' so I knew I'd never get those big roles. I'd always be the best friend or the quirky sidekick.
The whole sex symbol or babe thing doesn't bother me.
The kids know me from 'Babe,' but usually it is 'L.A. Confidential' that people remember, which was the second film I did. I have worked with some really good people and the films that I've done for the most part have been good.
It's the same with the ballplayers. Babe Ruth spent a lot, too and the ballplayers make a lot more money now.
Don't try to tell Namath's people on First Avenue about Babe Ruth, because they don't even know the name. In fact, with the young, you can forget all of baseball. The sport is gone. But if you ever have seen Ruth, and then you see Namath, you know there is very little difference.
Mr. Rickey, I'll put more people in the park than anybody since Babe Ruth.
Honestly, at one time I though Babe Ruth was a cartoon character. I really did, I mean I wasn't born until 1961 and I grew up in Indiana.
