Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing.
Who takes a child by the hand takes the mother by the heart.
A child may have too much of his mother’s blessing.
There never was a child so lovely but that his mother was glad to get him asleep.
Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; a mother’s secret hope outlives them all!
The bravest battle that ever was fought; Shall I tell you where and when? On the maps of the world you will find it not; It was fought by the mothers of men.
If I were hanged on the highest hill, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine! I know whose love would follow me still, Mother o’ mine, O mother o’ mine!
God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.
An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.
Who ran to help me when I fell, And would some pretty story tell, Or kiss the place to make it well? My Mother.
