I don’t think of all the misery but of the beauty that still remains.
I gave my beauty and my youth to men. I am going to give my wisdom and experience to animals.
In youth and beauty, wisdom is but rare!

Integrity reveals beauty.
It is sad to grow old but nice to ripen.
It takes a long time to become young.
No man is ever old enough to know better.

My mother was a personal friend of God's. They had ongoing conversations.
My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.
My mother worked in factories, worked as a domestic, worked in a restaurant, always had a second job.

I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars.
E. M. Forster
I am truly my mother's son.
