She hears the words of our soul, affirms our gifts and strengths, relights our fire, lifts us up and makes everything seem right. Some thoughts on motherhood: ‘All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.’ - Abraham Lincoln ‘My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the education I received from her.’- George Washington ‘There never was a woman like her. She was gentle as a dove and brave as a lioness... The memory of my mother and her teachings were, after all, the only capital I had to start life with, and on that capital I have made my way.’- Andrew Jackson ‘An ounce of mother is worth a ton of priest.’- Spanish proverb ‘The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.’- Henry Ward Beecher ‘I cannot tell you how much I owe to the solemn word of my good mother.’ - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
‘Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.’- Barbara Kingsolver ‘The future destiny of a child is always the work of the mother.’- Napoleon Bonaparte ‘To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.’ Maya Angelou ‘It seems to me that my mother was the most splendid woman I ever knew... I have met a lot of people knocking around the world since, but I have never met a more thoroughly refined woman than my mother. If I have amounted to anything, it will be due to her.’- Charles Chaplin ‘The mother, more than any other, affects the moral and spiritual part of the children's character. She is their constant companion and teacher in formative years. The child is ever imitating and assimilating the mother's nature. It is only in after life that men gaze backward and behold how a mother's hand and heart of love molded their young lives and shaped their destiny.’ E.W. Caswell ‘The noblest calling in the world is that of mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after painting shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give."- David O. McKay ‘My mother never gave up on me. I messed up in school so much they were sending me home, but my mother sent me right back.’- Denzel Washington ‘My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier you'll be a general; if you become a monk you'll end up as the pope." Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.’ - Pablo Picasso ‘I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life.’ ~Abraham Lincoln ‘My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being. I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.’ ~Graycie Harmon ‘A mother is a mother still, The holiest thing alive.’ ~Samuel Taylor Coleridge ‘When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.’ ~Sophia Loren, Women and
Beauty ‘If you bungle raising your children, nothing else you do well matters very much.’ – Jacqueline Kennedy Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. ~Author Unknown ‘The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new.’ ~Rajneesh ‘If the whole world were put into one scale, and my mother in the other, the whole world would kick the beam.’ ~Lord Langdale (Henry Bickersteth) Hundreds of dewdrops to greet the dawn, Hundreds of bees in the purple clover, Hundreds of butterflies on the lawn, But only one mother the wide world over. ~George Cooper The sweetest sounds to mortals given Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven. ~William Goldsmith Brown A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. ~Tenneva Jordan Being a full-time mother is one of the highest salaried jobs... since the payment is pure love. ~Mildred B. Vermont Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible. ~Marion C. Garretty Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. ~T. DeWitt Talmage The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers. ~Jewish Proverb A mother understands what a child does not say. ~Author Unknown A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
~Irish Proverb You don't really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-goround will wave at his parents every time around - and why his parents will always wave back. ~William D. Tammeus It kills you to see them grow up. But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn't. ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams Who fed me from her gentle breast And hushed me in her arms to rest, And on my cheek sweet kisses prest? Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well? My mother. ~Ann Taylor On Mother's Day I have written a poem for you. In the interest of poetic economy and truth, I have succeeded in concentrating my deepest feelings and beliefs into two perfectly crafted lines: You're my mother, I would have no other! ~Forest Houtenschil Children are a great comfort in your old age - and they help you reach it faster, too. ~Lionel Kauffman Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children. ~William Makepeace Thackeray 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 trouble thickens 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. ~Washington Irving This heart, my own dear mother, bends, With love's true instinct, back to thee! ~Thomas Moore Most mothers are instinctive philosophers. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe Before a day was over, Home comes the rover, For mother's kiss - sweeter this Than any other thing! ~William Allingham
Oh, the comfort, the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person, having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all out, just as they are, chaff and grain together, certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and with a breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Craik Where we love is home - home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr. Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom. ~Marcel Proust A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done. ~Author Unknown Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ~Elizabeth Stone Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children. ~Charles R.
