Dinocrates, I appreciate your design as excellent in composition, and I am delighted with it, but I apprehend that anybody who should found a city in that spot would be censured for bad judgement. For as a newborn babe cannot be nourished without the nurse's milk, nor conducted to the approaches that lead to growth in life, so a city cannot thrive without fields and the fruits thereof pouring into its walls.Alexander the Great
My people too were scared with eerie sounds, A footstep, a low throbbing in the walls, A noise of falling weights that never fell, Weird whispers, bells that rang without a hand, Door-handles turn'd when none was at the door, And bolted doors that open'd of themselves; And one betwixt the dark and light had seen Her, bending by the cradle of her babe.Alfred Tennyson
Sweet babe, in thy face soft desires I can trace. Secret joys and secret smiles, little pretty infant wiles.william blake
Most entrepreneurs who have the guts to take on a big challenge are a lot like Babe Ruththey set records for both home runs and strike outs.

Sweet and low, sweet and low, Wind of the western sea, Low, low, breathe and blow, Wind of the western sea! Over the rolling waters go, Come from the dying moon, and blow, Blow him again to me; While my little one, while my pretty one, sleeps. Sleep and rest, sleep and rest, Father will come to thee soon; Rest, rest, on mother's breast, Father will come to thee soon; Father will come to his babe in the nest, Silver sails all out of the west Under the silver moon: Sleep, my little one, sleep, my pretty one, sleep.Tennyson
A babe, by intercourse of touch I held mute dialogues with my Mother's heart.william wordsworth
"Guillory in person is still more shockingly fascinating, the unguarded, free-associating opposite of any cliched Brit- babe."sienna guillory
Cold on Canadian hills or Minden’s plain,Perhaps that parent mourned her soldier slain;Bent o'er her babe, her eye dissolved in dew,The big drops mingling with the milk he drewGave the sad presage of his future years,—The child of misery, baptized in tears.
The babe is at peace within the womb, the corpse is at rest within the tomb. We begin in what we end.Percy Bysshe Shelley
There are slave-drivers quietly whipped underground, There bookbinders, done up in boards, are fast bound, There card-players wait till the last trump be played, There all the choice spirits get finally laid, There the babe that's unborn is supplied with a berth, There men without legs get their six feet of earth, There lawyers repose, each wrapped up in his case, There seekers of office are sure of a place, There defendant and plaintiff get equally cast, There shoemakers quietly stick to the last.james russell lowell
Here and there a cotter's babe is royal born by right divine; Here and there my lord is lower than his oxen or his swine.
Bow, stubborn knees; and, heart, with strings of steel, Be soft as sinews of the new-born babe.william shakespeare
Flowers are words Which even a babe may understand.
