Other than a dimple in a cute little chin,
What's more adorable than a toothless grin?
~Azu "Betty" Espezia
In this pocket you will find
A teensy, tiny tooth of mine.
So while I sleep where dreams are made,
Let's see if you can make a trade.
Every tooth in a man's head is more valuable than a diamond.
~Miguel de Cervantes, Don Quixote, 1605
You don't have to brush your teeth - just the ones you want to keep.
The tongue is ever turning to the aching tooth.
Money is much more exciting than anything it buys.
~Mignon McLaughlin, The Second Neurotic's Notebook, 1966
The tooth fairy teaches children that they can sell body parts for money.
Parents are the bones on which children cut their teeth.
But no one ever is allowed in Sleepytown, unless
He goes to bed in time to take the Sleepytown Express!
~James Jackson Montague, The Sleepytown Express
Listen to the wisdom of the toothless ones.
When one of Lisa's baby teeth fell out here, the tooth fairy left her 50 cents. Another tooth fell out when she was with her father in Las Vegas, and that tooth fairy left her $5. When I told Elvis that 50 cents would be more in line, he laughed. He knew I was not criticizing him; how would Elvis Presley know the going rate for a tooth?
Losing baby teeth were a part and parcel of one's life - a symbol of growing up, and it is the tooth-fairy that makes this otherwise dreaded and painful process an exciting one - something to look forward to.
A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore.
The worst thing in the world is to try to sleep and not to.
~F. Scott Fitzgerald
The little Plumpuppets are fairies of beds;
They have nothing to do but watch sleepyheads;
They turn down the sheets and they tuck you in tight,
And dance on your pillow to wish you good night!
What we remember from childhood we remember forever - permanent ghosts, stamped, inked, imprinted, eternally seen.
There was never a child so lovely but his mother was glad to get him to sleep.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
I got rid of my teeth at a young age because I'm straight. Teeth are for gay people. That's why fairies come and get them.
Adam and Eve had many advantages, but the principal one was that they escaped teething.
The only thing worth stealing is a kiss from a sleeping child.
