Happy Mother’s Day

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers, grandmothers, and those like mothers. May all of you have a blessed day!

In honor of this special day, I’ve posted a smattering of quotes about this special group of people:

God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” — Rudyard Kipling

“A mother is a mother still, The holiest thing alive.” — Samuel Taylor Coleridge

“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 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 trouble thickens 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 quotes

“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” — Abraham Lincoln

“Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.” — Aristotle

“Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together.”– Pearl S. Buck

“There’s a lot more to being a woman than being a mother, but there’s a hell a lot more to being a mother than most people suspect.” — Roseanne Barr
