Nursery Quotations

My nursery school did a production of 'The Three Little Pigs.' I played the third pig. When the wolf knocked on my door, I refused to get up and answer it because, to me, he was knocking the wrong way. I just lay there, snoring away on stage, fully immersed in my character. My dad turned to my mom and said: 'Dustin Hoffman.'
Zooey Deschanel

A true poet does not bother to be poetical. Nor does a nursery gardener scent his roses.
Jean Cocteau

The most important part of education is proper training in the nursery.

Happy is he who still loves something he loved in the nursery: He has not been broken in two by time; he is not two men, but one, and he has saved not only his soul but his life.
Gilbert K. Chesterton

A man's home may seem to be his castle on the outside; inside is more often his nursery.
