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
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)

Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven.
~William Goldsmith Brown
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 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
Grown don't mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown? What's that suppose to mean? In my heart it don't mean a thing. ~Toni Morrison
There is an instinct in a woman to love most her own child - and an instinct to make any child who needs her love, her own. ~Robert Brault
Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
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 painter's brush, nor poet's pen
In justice to her fame
Has ever reached half high enough
To write a mother's name.
God could not be everywhere, so he created mothers. ~Jewish Proverb
Life is the fruit she longs to hand you,
Ripe on a plate.
And while you live,
Relentlessly she understands you.
