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.
A mother understands what a child does not say.
I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights.
Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world a mother's love is not.
Being a full-time mother is one of highest salaried jobs… since the payment is pure love.
Mildred B. Vermont
A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take.
A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all.
Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.
Misery is when you make your bed and then your mother tells you it’s the day she’s changing the sheets.
Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes, by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers and sisters, aunts and cousins, comrades and friends - but only one mother in the whole world.
Kate Douglas Wiggin
No matter how old a mother is, she watches her middle-aged children for signs of improvement.
Florida Scott Maxwell
All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.
