Overview

The first real smile. The first laugh. The indescribable warmth of holding your daughter as she falls asleep in your arms. The special joy in hearing your son say "Mama" for the first time. But parenthood is not only full of moments you'll never forget, it's one of the most important journeys you'll ever take. What does it mean to create a whole new life? What will you teach your children -- and what will you learn from them? Throughout time, parents who were everything from poets to politicians have reflected on the ways their children changed their lives and the powerful feelings their children inspired. Presented here are more than one hundred of their thoughts on everything from changing diapers to the empty nest, from people like Barbra Streisand, J.K. Rowling, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Lucille Ball, Jerry Seinfeld, Sigmund Freud, and Mark Twain. Elegant, moving, and very often amusing, these are words from people just like you -- parents who fell in love the moment they heard their newborn's first unmistakable cry.
