“A mother understands what a child does not say.”
“The mother loves her child most divinely, not when she surrounds him with comfort and anticipates his wants, but when she resolutely holds him to the highest standards and is content with nothing less than his best.”
“Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well? My mother”
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
“There is no undertaking more challenging, no responsibility more awesome, than that of being a mother.” ~President Gerald R. Ford
The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.
Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.
The love of a mother is the veil of a softer light between the heart and the heavenly Father.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
On me the tempest falls. It does not make me tremble. O holy Mother Earth, O air and sun, behold me. I am wronged.
A mother’s yearning feels the presence of the cherished child even in the degraded man.
