Sooner murder an infant in its cradle than nurse unacted desires. 134
Rose a nurse of ninety years, Set his child upon her knee^ Like summer tempest came her tears^ 'Sweet my child, I live for thee.'Tennyson
The unbought grace of life, the cheap defence of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise isgone! it isgone, that sensibility of principle, that chastity of honour, which felt a stain like a wound, which ennobled whatever it touched, and under which vice itself lost half its evil, by losing all its grossness.Edmund Burke
By education most have been misled; So they believe, because they so were bred. The priest continues what the nurse began, And thus the child imposes on the man.john dryden
O harmony! thou tenderest nurse of pain,If that thy note's sweet magic e'er can healGriefs which the patient spirit oft may feel,Oh! let me listen to thy songs again;Till memory her fairest tints shall bring;Hope wake with brighter eye, and listening seemWith smiles to think on some delightful dream.william lisle bowles
Great Goddesse to whose throne in Cynthian fires,This earthlie Alter endlesse fumes expires,Therefore, in fumes of sighes and fires of griefe,To fearefull chances thou sendst bold reliefe,Happie, thrise happie, Type, and nurse of death,Who breathlesse, feedes on nothing but our breath,In whom must vertue and her issue liue,Or dye for euer.George Chapman
Amazons .... were conquerors, horse tamers, and huntresses who gave birth to children but did not nurse or rear them [these Amazons being the aforementioned "feminist wing"][.]helen diner
When less than four years old I was standing with my nurse, Mary Ward, watching the shadows on the wall from branches of an elm behind which the moon had risen. I have never forgot those shadows and am often trying to paint them.samuel palmer
Anyway everyboy (sorry) knows that what women have done that is really important is not to constitute a great, cheap labor force that you can zip in when you're at war and zip out again afterwards but to Be Mothers, to form the coming generation, to give birth to them, to nurse them, to mop floors for them, to love them, cook for them, clean for them, change their diapers, pick up after them, and mainly sacrifice themselves for them. This is the most important job in the world. That’s why they don’t pay you for it.joanna russ
Our so-called Society people, instead of going in for sport, persist in holding conversations in their drawing rooms, generally in a foreign tongue. They engage nurse maids, personal maids and governesses of all nationalities except Italian. They play poker and bridge with the accompanying drinks, certainly not Italian brands!achille starace
In the matter of the maintenance and rearing of children the Anarchists would neither institute the communistic nursery which the State Socialists favor nor keep the communistic school system which now prevails. The nurse and the teacher, like the doctor and the preacher, must be selected voluntarily, and their services must be paid for by those who patronize them. Parental rights must not be taken away, and parental responsibilities must not be foisted upon others.benjamin tucker
Solitude is the nurse of enthusiasm, and enthusiasm is the true parent of genius. In all ages solitude has been called for has been flown to.isaac d'israeli
Solitude is the best nurse of wisdom.
The unbought grace of life, the cheap defence of nations, the nurse of manly sentiment and heroic enterprise, is gone!Edmund Burke
Save one life... and you are a hero. Save one hundred lives... and you are a nurse.
There is no evidence that wounded troops care about the sexual orientation of the flight nurse or medical technician tending to their wounds.
Water is the mother of the vine, The nurse and fountain of fecundity, The adorner and refresher of the world.charles mackay
Peace, peace! Dost thou not see my baby at my breast, That sucks the nurse asleep?
This royal throne of kings, this scepter'd isle, This earth of Majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise; This fortress built by Nature for herself, Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall, Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands; This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England, This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings, Fear'd by their breed, and famous by their birth.
