Mothers quotes
Mothers
Ridicule often checks what is absurd, and fully as often smothers that which is noble.

- Scott, Sir Walter
The fact that we are all trained to be mothers from infancy on means that we are all trained to devote our lives to men, whether they are our sons or not; that we are all trained to force other women to exemplify the lack of qualities which characterizes the cultural construct of femininity.

- Dworkin, Andrea
Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.

- Lin Yu-tang
Motherhood is the strangest thing, it can be like being one's own Trojan horse.

- West, Rebecca
We are all conceived in close prison; in our mothers wombs, we are close prisoners all; when we are born, we are born but to the liberty of the house; prisoners still, though within larger walls; and then all our life is but a going out to the place of execution, to death.

- Donne, John
Mothers born on relief have their babies on relief. Nothingness, truly, seems to be the condition of these New York people. They are nomads going from one rooming house to another, looking for a toilet that functions.

- Hardwick, Elizabeth
When a woman is twenty, a child deforms her; when she is thirty, he preserves her; and when forty, he makes her young again.

- Blum, Leon
God couldn't be everywhere, so he created mothers

- Proverb, Jewish
How simple a thing it seems to me that to know ourselves as we are, we must know our mothers names.

- Walker, Alice
I wish all the mothers, fathers and children out there realize how much I need them and how much I value their support.

- Diana, Princess of Wales
All that remains to the mother in modern consumer society is the role of scapegoat; psychoanalysis uses huge amounts of money and time to persuade analysis and to foist their problems on to the absent mother, who has no opportunity to utter a word in her own defense. Hostility to the mother in our societies is an index of mental health.

- Greer, Germaine
A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother.

Only in America do these peasants, our mothers, get their hair dyed platinum at the age of sixty, and walk up and down Collins Avenue in Florida in pedal pushers and mink stoles -- and with opinions on every subject under the sun. It isn't their fault they were given a gift like speech -- look, if cows could talk, they would say things just as idiotic.

- Roth, Philip
There is always so much talk about the sins of the fathers, but it is the sins of the mothers that are the most difficult to avoid repeating.

- Melanie Benjamin
What is the commonest, and yet the least remembered form of heroism? The heroism of an average mother. Ah! when I think of that broad fact I gather hope again for poor humanity, and this dark world looks bright, this diseased world looks wholesome to me once more, because, whatever else it is or is not full of, it is at least full of mothers.

- Lecture on Heroism. 1873.
Women know the way to rear up children (to be just). They know a simple, merry, tender knack of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense. And kissing full sense into empty words.

- Browning, Elizabeth Barrett
Nobody can misunderstand a boy like his own mother. Mothers at present can bring children into the world, but this performance is apt to mark the end of their capacities. They can't even attend to the elementary animal requirements of their offspring. It is quite surprising how many children survive in spite of their mothers.

- Douglas, Norman
When the grandmothers of today hear the word ``Chippendales,'they don't necessary think of chairs.

- Joan Kerr
For that's what a woman, a mother wants -- to teach her children to take an interest in life. She knows it's safer for them to be interested in other people's happiness than to believe in their own.

- Duras, Marguerite
There are lots of things that you can brush under the carpet about yourself until you're faced with somebody whose needs won't be put off.

- Carter, Angela
