Some baby shower quotes include, "A baby is an inestimable blessing and bother," by Mark Twain and, "Change always comes bearing gifts," by Price Pritchett. Twain summarizes the difficulties and joy that come with having a child, while Pritchett explains how babies can change a person's life for the better.
A general quote that can be appropriate for a baby shower is, "How beautiful a day can be, when kindness touches it," by George Elliston. At a baby shower, one possible interpretation of the kindness Elliston refers to is gift giving.
A quote by A.A. Milne is, "Sometimes the smallest things take up the most room in your heart." This quote can also refer to the gifts people bring to parents, because even the smallest gifts can bring them joy.
A quote specifically about baby boys by Charles Dickens is, "O glorious to be a human boy!...O running stream of sparkling joy. To be a soaring human boy!" For baby girls, a quote by Robert A. Heinlein states, "Little girls, like butterflies, need no excuse."
Baby shower guests or hosts may use quotes on thank you cards and decorations, or the parents may wish to use them on thank you cards.
