If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.
Edward W. Howe
If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?
It is only in the act of nursing that a woman realizes her motherhood in visible and tangible fashion; it is a joy of every moment.
Honore De Balzac
Just as a mother finds pleasure in taking her little child on her lap, there to feed and caress him, in like manner our loving God shows His fondness for His beloved souls who have given themselves entirely to Him and have placed all their hope in His goodness.
Life began with waking up and loving my mother's face.
