The most important thing a father can do for his children
is to love their mother.
Of all the rights of women,
the greatest is to be mother.
- Lin Yutang
My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw.
All I am I owe to my mother.
I attribute all my success in life to the moral,
intellectual and physical education
I received from her.
- George Washington
I remember my mother's prayers
and they have always followed me.
They have clung to me all my life.
Youth fades; love droops;
the leaves of friendships fall;
A Mother's secret hope outlives them all.
- Oliver Wendell Holmes
