Infant Quotations

Infant mortality and life expectancy are reasonable indicators of general well-being in a society.
P. J. O'Rourke

You could imagine a language exactly like English except it doesn't have connectives like 'and' that allow you to make longer expressions. An infant learning truncated English would have no idea about this: They would just pick it up as they would standard English.
Noam Chomsky

It is as natural to die as to be born; and to a little infant, perhaps, the one is as painful as the other.
Francis Bacon

The abandoned infant's cry is rage, not fear.
Robert Anton Wilson

Those who give themselves to prayer should in a special manner have always a devotion to St. Joseph; for I know not how any man can think of the Queen of the angels, during the time that she suffered so much with the Infant Jesus, without giving thanks to St. Joseph for the services he rendered them then.
Saint Teresa of Avila
