"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)
"When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child." (Sophia Loren)
"God could not be everywhere and therefore he made mothers." (Jewish Proverb)
"Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother." (Oprah Winfrey)
