Mothers Quotes

Teenage boys, goaded by their surging hormones run in packs like the primal horde. They have only a brief season of exhilarating liberty between control by their mothers and control by their wives.

Camille Paglia

Morality becomes hypocrisy if it means accepting mothers suffering or dying in connection with unwanted pregnancies and illegal abortions - and unwanted children living in misery

Unknown

Heaven liveth at the feet of mothers

Muhammad

With those who don't give a damn about baseball I can only sympathize. I do not resent them. I am even willing to concede that many of them are physically clean, good to their mothers and in favor of world peace. But while the game is on, I can't think of anything to say to them

Art Hill

Hating the New York Yankees is as American as apple pie, unwed mothers and cheating on your income tax

Mike Royko

Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers - and fathering is a very important stage in their development

David M. Gottesman

Mothers Day is in honor of the best Mother who ever lived - the Mother of your heart

Anna Jarvis

The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.

Oliver Wendell Holmes

All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.

Oscar Wilde

Men are what their mothers made them

Ralph Waldo Emerson

All fathers are invisible in daytime; daytime is ruled by mothers and fathers come out at night. Darkness brings home fathers, with their real, unspeakable power. There is more to fathers than meets the eye

Margaret Atwood

Fathers, like mothers, are not born. Men grow into fathers and fathering is a very important stage in their development.

David Gottesman

Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.

Bern Williams

God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers.

Jewish Proverb

Mothers are all slightly insane.

J. D. Salinger

Poverty is a divine stepmother who does for youths what their own mothers were unable to do. It introduces them to frugality, to the world and to life.

Honore de Balzac

All mothers are working mothers.

Unknown

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same.

Pearl Buck (1892 - 1973)

Most mothers are instinctive philosophers.

Harriet Beecher Stowe

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.

Aristotle

Nothing else exists for them [Psychiatrists] in the universe beyond enormous mothers and fathers, colossal, almost cosmic, and a child reduced to an anus, penis, and mouth who maintains with these two unbearable creatures a singular relationship from which are excluded spontaneity and joy. Of all the doctors I have known, psychoanalysts, a congregation of lay priests with bible, rites, and the faithful, constitute the most sinister, the most ridiculous, the most unwholesome of the species.

Antnio Lobo Antunes

Captain Hall expressed some doubts as to my views respecting the affection and love of pigeons, as if I made it human, and raised the possessors quite above the brutes. I presume the love of the mothers for their young is much the same as the love of woman for her offspring. There is but one kind of love; God is love, and all his creatures derive theirs from his; only it is modified by the different degrees of intelligence in different beings and creatures.

John James Audubon

A mothers life, you see, is one long succession of dramas, now soft and tender, now terrible. Not an hour but has its joys and fears.

Honor de Balzac

Now my humble fear is that this double training, in language as well as in thought, imposes somewhat too heavy a burden upon the young, especially when, at the age of three years old, they are taken from the maternal care and taught to unlearn the old language except for the purpose of repeating it in the presence of their Mothers and Nurses and to learn the vocabulary and idiom of science. Already methinks I discern a weakness in the grasp of mathematical truth at the present time as compared with the more robust intellect of our ancestors three hundred years ago.

Edwin Abbott
