Happy Mother’s Day!


Motherhood quotes

Happy Mother’s Day! I hope all of the moms out there are spending the day with the ones they love and doing the things that they enjoy. Here are a few quotes to help us honor mothers everywhere.

“A mother is always the beginning. She is how things begin.” ― Amy Tan

“When your mother asks, ‘Do you want a piece of advice?’ it’s a mere formality. It doesn’t matter if you answer yes or no. You’re going to get it anyway.” ― Erma Bombeck

“Life began with waking up and loving my mother’s face.” – George Eliot

“I really saw clearly, and for the first time, why a mother is really important. Not just because she feeds and also loves and cuddles and even mollycoddles a child, but because in an interesting and maybe an eerie and unworldly way, she stands in the gap. She stands between the unknown and the known.” – Maya Angelou

“A mother’s happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.” – Honoré de Balzac

“Motherhood is the greatest thing and the hardest thing.” – Ricki Lake
