A Mother's Love

All that I am or ever hope to be,
I owe to my angel Mother.
-Abraham Lincoln-

The Mother's heart is the child's school room.
-Henry Ward Beecher-

The sweetest sounds to mortals given
Are heard in Mother, Home and Heaven.
-William Goldsmith Brown-

Mother is the name for God in the lips
and hearts of little children.
-William Makepeace Thackeray-

My Mother had a slender, small body, 
but a large heart- a heart so large
that everybody's joy found welcome
in it,and hospitable accommodation.
-Mark Twain-

A Mother's happiness is like a beacon,
lighting up the future but reflected also
on the past in the guise of fond memories.
-Honore' de Balzac

A father may turn his back on his child,
brothers and sisters may become
inveterate enemies, husbands may 
desert their wives, wives their husbands,
But a Mother's love endures through all.
-Washington Irving-

When you are a Mother, you are never really 
alone in your thoughts. A Mother always
has to think twice, once for herself and
once for her child.
-Sophia Loren-

A Mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled.
-Emily Dickinson-

The heart of a Mother is a deep abyss
at the bottom of which you will always
find forgiveness.
-Honore' de Balzac-

A man loves his sweetheart the most,
his wife the best, 
but his Mother the longest.
-Irish Proverb-

If you bungle raising your children,
I don't think whatever else you do well
matters very much.
-Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis-

I miss thee, my Mother! Thy image is still
The deepest impressed on my heart.
-Eliza Cook-

The hand that rocks the cradle
is the hand that rules the world.
-W.R. Wallace-


Wishing you a Wonderful Mother's Day, Dear Friends!
