My mom said the only reason men are alive is for lawn care and vehicle maintenance.
People have to understand how important it is for kids to be nurtured by their mom and dad and get the great role modeling when they are young.
My mom always said, 'Don't date a guy who thinks he's prettier than you.'
I gotta be honest with you. I'm kind of jealous of the way my dad gets to talk to my mom sometimes. Where are all those old-school women you can just take your day out on? When did they stop making those angels?
I think my mom put it best. She said, 'Little girls soften their daddy's hearts.'
I've never lived my life in the opinion of others. I believe I'm a good person. I believe I'm a good mom. But that's for my kids to decide, not for the world.
When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race.
The real menace in dealing with a five-year-old is that in no time at all you begin to sound like a five-year-old.
My mother thinks I am the best. And I was raised to always believe what my mother tells me.
Motherhood is the strangest thing, it can be like being one's own Trojan horse.
There are only two things a child will share willingly; communicable diseases and its mother's age.
I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars.
E. M. Forster
The woman is uniformly sacrificed to the wife and mother.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all.
Motherhood is a great honor and privilege, yet it is also synonymous with servanthood. Every day women are called upon to selflessly meet the needs of their families. Whether they are awake at night nursing a baby, spending their time and money on less-than-grateful teenagers, or preparing meals, moms continuously put others before themselves.
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.
The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
Honore de Balzac
An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.
Men are what their mothers made them.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
When your mother asks, 'Do you want a piece of advice?' it is a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.
Being able to take care of myself is something that my mom really instilled in me.
My mom had not worked a day in her life, and then she woke up when I was 15 and found herself with four children, no job, no money. But she set out and made it all OK for us, and from that, I saw that there's no problem that can't be solved.
I'm a religious person. I remember my mom told me: 'Vengeance belongs to God. It's up to him to wreak vengeance.' It's hard for me to get to that point, but that's the work of God.
My mom has always wished me a daughter just like me.
One day I went up to my mom and I said, 'Mom, can I have permission to build a 2.3-million electron-volt atom smasher - a betatron - in the garage?' And my mom stared at me, and she said, 'Sure. Why not? And don't forget to take out the garbage.'
I don't want to be perfect, but I do want to be a role model. My mom always tells me that imperfections equal beauty.
As far as I'm concerned, there's no job more important on the planet than being a mom.
My mom never taught me to be waiting for some prince on a white horse to swipe me off my feet.
My mom is a yoga instructor: 100% black with dreadlocks.
My mom taught me how to sew when I was 2 or 3, so I've been sewing for as long as I can remember.
My mom is always telling me it takes a long time to get to the top, but a short time to get to the bottom.
If I made a list of the people I admire, Mom would probably fill up half of it.
When you're a mom, you need sparkle to compensate for the light inside of you that has died.
