Happy Mother's Day

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

The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.
~Henry Ward Beecher

Youth fades; love droops,
the leaves of friendship fall;
A mother's secret hope outlives them all.
~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Becoming a mother makes you the mother of all children.  From now on each wounded,
abandoned, frightened child is yours.  You live in the suffering mothers of every race and creed
and weep with them.  You long to comfort all who are desolate.
~ Charlotte Gray

A mother's yearning feels the presence of the cherished child even in the degraded man.
~ George Eliot

Women know the way to rear up children (to be just).  They know a simple, merry, tender knack 
of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense.  And, kissing 
full sense into empty words.
~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning

Making the decision to have a child is momentous.  It is to decide forever to have your heart go
walking around outside your body.
~ Elizabeth Stone

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 endeavor by her kind precepts
and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
~ Washington Irving

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

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 receive from her.
~ George Washington

Few misfortunes can befall a boy which brings worse consequences than to have a really 
affectionate mother.
~ W. Somerset Maugham

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.
~ Rajneesh

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.
~ Jewish proverb

A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.
~ Irish Proverb

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me.  
They have clung to me all my life.
~ Abraham Lincoln
