If the whole world were put into one scale, and my mother in the other, the whole world would kick the beam.
You're my mother, I would have no other!
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
A mother is she who can take the place of all others but
whose place no one else can take.
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.
Marion C. Garretty
A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children. From now on each wounded, abandoned, frightened child is yours. You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed and weep with them. You long to comfort all who are desolate.
Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
Education commences at the mother's knee, and every word spoken within hearsay of little children tends toward the formation of character.
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
A mother is a mother still, the holiest thing alive.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
My mom is a never ending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.
This heart, my own dear mother, bends,
with love's true instinct, back to thee!
Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower then my mother is that sweet flower of love.
Children do not arrive with instructions, but they do confer the immense and immediate responsibility of figuring out how best to care for them. Parenting does not all 'come naturally' but ready or not, it comes.
