Mother's Day

In celebration of Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a list of quotes honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society:

  • 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
  • Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother. --Lin Yutang, Chinese writer
  • All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his. --Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest, 1895
  • Nobody knows of the work it makes
    To keep the home together.
    Nobody knows of the steps it takes,
    Nobody knows-but Mother. -- Anonymous
  • Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. --T. DeWitt Talmage
