That Wonderful Woman Called Mother

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHTS ON MOTHERHOOD

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, but only one mother in the whole world.
--Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923), U.S. Author and Educator

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.

Motherhood is the most important of all the professions, requiring more knowledge than any other department in human affairs.

From my experience and observation, if a family is held together in difficult circumstances, nine times out of ten it's the woman who's doing it.

Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.
--William Makepeace Thackeray (1811-1863), British Novelist

The strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.

The role of a mother is probably the most important career a woman can have.

--Spanish Proverb

My mother was the making of me.
--Thomas A. Edison

All that I am or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother. No man is poor who has a godly mother.
--Abraham Lincoln

Rejecting things because they are oldfashioned would rule out the sun and the moon and a mother's love.

The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or 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 paintings shall have faded and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give.
—David O. McKay

The hand that rocks the cradle Is the hand that rules the world.
--William Ross Wallace (1819-1881), U.S. Poet and Songwriter
