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 troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
- Washington Irving
God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
- Jewish Proverb
A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.
- Victor Hugo
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.
- Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh
I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education which I received from my mother.
- George Washington
