2. “All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

3. “The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.” ~ Jessica Lange

4. “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her.” —George Washington

5. “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 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

6. “Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.” ~ Robert Browning

7. “Mother – that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries.” ~ T. DeWitt Talmage

8. “Mother’s love is bliss, is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. If it is there, it is like a blessing; if it is not there it is as if all the beauty had gone out of life.” ~ Erich Fromm

9. “Woman is the salvation or the destruction of the family. She carries its destiny in the folds of her mantle.” ~ Henri Frederic Amiel

10. “To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.” ~ Maya Angelou
