“I learned more about Christianity from my mother than from all the theologians in England.” (John Wesley)

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." (Abraham Lincoln)

"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 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 I was a child my mother said to me, 'If you become a soldier, you'll be a general. If you become a monk, you'll be the pope.' Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso." (Pablo Picasso)

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)

"The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom."  (Henry Ward Beecher)

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

Happy Mother's Day!
