All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.– Oscar Wilde
A daughter is a mother’s gender partner, her closest ally in the family confederacy, an extension of her self. And mothers are their daughters’ role model, their biological and emotional road map, the arbiter of all their relationships.
~ Victoria Secunda
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new. ~Rajneesh
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own. ~Aristotle
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 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
I miss thee, my Mother!
Thy image is still
The deepest impressed on my heart. ~Eliza Cook
Happy Mother’s Day,
