Nursery Quotations

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

I like Fisher Price music, nursery rhymes, and the alphabet song.
Tre Cool

I was a nursery school teacher, and I worked with youth groups. I loved that job. It was exhausting, but you got a lot back - all their purity and insight and innocence is so on the surface, and they're so unrepressed; they'd really scream at you and then give you a massive kiss.
Bat for Lashes

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