A mother has a “mother’s intuition.”

A mother knows her children best.
No other can take the place of a mother.
Mother’s Day Quotes dedicated to Mothers, Grandmothers, and godmothers and to those mothers who have departed.
“A mother is a mother still, the holiest thing alive.”
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.”
William Makepeace Thackeray
“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 endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.”
Washington Irving (1783-1859)
“What do girls do who haven’t any mothers to help them through their troubles?”
Louisa May Alcott
“Mothers can look through a child’s eyes and see tomorrow.
Mothers deserve the credit for raising value based leaders who accept responsibility; who possess physical, mental, and spiritual strength; who possess courage and confidence; and look with optimism to the future.
Great mothers help their children to recognize that they can achieve the impossible.
Great mothers bring the arms of comfort to an insecure child in a world of uncertainty.”
Reed Markham, American Educator
“To the world you might just be one person, but to one person you might just be the world.”
Happy Mother’s Day
First of all that sculpture is just beautiful! And all of those quotes speak volumes about motherhood. My favorite is the one by Louisa may Alcott “Mothers can look through a child’s eyes and see tomorrow.” Thanks for sharing them all!
Thanks Jacquie. I discovered the sculpture along Millbank just by Victoria Embankment in London by surprise. The quotes say so much about motherhood.
