An ode to mothers! They have toiled, they have sacrificed, they have given more than we can ever imagine possible. For mothers, it can be an endless routine task. Parenting can be quite a trying job, especially if you have a handful of boisterous bundles of destructive energy. It takes more than your mettle to deal with the minute-to-minute parenting. Here is a special collection of Mother's Day Quotes for our boldest and gentlest mothers. If you can't say it with words, say it with these quotes.
John Erskine: Woman in the home has not yet lost her dignity, in spite of Mother's Day, with its offensive implication that our love needs an annual nudging, like our enthusiasm for the battle of Bunker Hill.
Elaine Heffner: Women do not have to sacrifice personhood if they are mothers. They do not have to sacrifice motherhood in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand women's opportunities, not to limit them. The self-esteem that has been found in new pursuits can also be found in mothering.
Oscar Wilde: All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.
Rajneesh: 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.
Peter De Vries: A suburban mother's role is to deliver children obstetrically once, and by car forever after.
Author Unknown: All mothers are working mothers.
Golda Meir: At work, you think of the children you have left at home. At home, you think of the work you've left unfinished. Such a struggle is unleashed within yourself. Your heart is rent.
