We were equals once when we lay new-born babes on our nurse's knees. We will be equal again when they tie up our jaws for the last sleep.
— Olive Schreiner

Each age has deemed the new-born year the fittest time for festal cheer.
Walter Scott newborn quote

Behold the Child among his new-born blissesA six years' Darling of a pigmy size!See, where 'mid work of his own hand he lies,Fretted by sallies of his mother's kisses,With light upon him from his father's eyes!See, at his feet, some little plan or chart,Some fragment from his dream of human life,Shaped by himself with newly-learned art.
— William Wordsworth

For mankind, speech with a capital S is especially meaningful and committing, more than the content communicated. The outcry of the newborn and the sound of the bells are fraught with mystery more than the baby's woeful face or the venerable tower.
— Paul Goodman

I don't know any parents that look into the eyes of a newborn baby and say, How can we screw this kid up.
— newborn quotation by Russell Bishop
