To a child's ear, "MOTHER" is magic in any language. 
Arlene Benedict

"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell "MOTHER,"
A word that means the world to me.
Howard Johnson

You may be treated like the maid,
you may be treated like the gardener,
you may be treated like the daycare,
you may be treated like the chauffer,
you may be treated like many things.
But one thing is for sure,
You will always be loved.
For a fathers work may be from sun up till sundown,
but a mothers work is never down.
And all that I have, am, and hope to be, I owe to you,
So this is for all the times I forgot to say, "THANK YOU."
Alison Thompson

A good mother is worth hundreds of schoolmasters.
George Herbert

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever

A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.
Tenneva Jordan

A mother understands what a child does not say.
Jewish proverb

Men are what their mothers made them. 
Ralph Waldo Emerson

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 troubles thicken 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

Most mothers are instinctive philosophers. 
Harriet Beecher Stowe

Mother - that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. 
T. DeWitt Talmage

Motherhood is priced; Of God, a price no man may dare; To lessen or misunderstand.
Helen Hunt Jackson

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own. 

Mothers hold their children’s hands for a short while, but their hearts forever. 

Never marry a man who hates his mother, because he’ll end up hating you. 
Jill Bennett

No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you - life. 

When you were small and just a touch away, I covered you with blankets against the cold night air. But now that you are tall and out of reach, I fold my hands and cover you with prayer. Dona Maddux Cooper

She is my first, great love. She was a wonderful, rare woman - you do not know; as strong, and steadfast, and generous as the sun. She could be as swift as a white whiplash, and as kind and gentle as warm rain, and as steadfast as the irreducible earth beneath us.
D. H. Lawrence

The mother is everything - she is our consolation in sorrow, our hope in misery, and our strength in weakness. She is the source of love, mercy, sympathy, and forgiveness. He who loses his mother loses a pure soul who blesses and guards him constantly. 
Kahlil Gibran

Most of all the other beautiful things in life come by twos and threes by dozens and hundreds. Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets, rainbows, brothers, and sisters, aunts and cousins, but only one mother in the whole world. Kate Douglas Wiggin
