Quotes about breastfeeding from the theatre

WOMAN THREE: I got it pumped into me too, but I mean like literally. My mother? - she used to take me with her when she played. It was hard to get baby-sitters in the daytime then and I was just a baby. She just stuck me in a corner in my little basket thingamajig, and if I got hungry and made a fuss, she’d whip out a boob right there at the table. Never missed a hand. A month old, two months old, and there I was, sucking up all those hearts and diamond tricks along with my mother’s milk, God, I wonder what it tastes like.

WOMAN ONE: (reflecting) Vanilla ice cream - that’s what I’ve heard, only melted.

Carol Shields. Thirteen Hands, act 1

Stick to your desk
And never go to sea
And you'll all be rulers of the queen’s navy

Gilbert and Sullivan. HMS Pinafore

Would the world ever have been made if its maker had been afraid of making trouble? Making life means making trouble.

GB Shaw. Pygmalion. Act V. (Henry Higgins to Eliza Doolittle)
