Mothers quotes
Mothers
1.

Liberty!--Electric word! What is it? Is there anything more in it than a name--a rhetorical flourish? Why, men and women of America, does your hearts blood thrill at that word, for which your fathers bled, and your braver mothers were willing that their noblest and best should die? Is there anything in it glorious and dear for a nation, that is not also glorious and dear for a man?

- Harriet Beecher Stowe
2.

Lord Illingworth: All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. Mrs. Allonby: No man does. That is his.

- Wilde, Oscar
3.

No culture on earth outside of mid-century suburban America has ever deployed one woman per child without simultaneously assigning her such major productive activities as weaving, farming, gathering, temple maintenance, and tent-building. The reason is that full-time, one-on-one child-raising is not good for women or children.

- Ehrenreich, Barbara
4.

Some things I never learned to like. I didn't like to kiss babies, though I didn't mind kissing their mothers.

- Pierre Trudeau
5.

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same.

- Pearl Buck
6.

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.

- Aristotle
7.

Some are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same -- and most mothers kiss and scold together.

- Buck, Pearl S.
8.

By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.

- Lindbergh, Anne Morrow
9.

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
10.

But the mother's yearning, that completest type of the life in another life which is the essence of real human love, feels the presence of the cherished child even in the debased, degraded man.

- Eliot, George
11.

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.

- Washington, George
12.

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

- Lin Yu-tang
13.

No woman is really an insider in the institutions fathered by masculine consciousness. When we allow ourselves to believe we are, we lose touch with parts of ourselves defined as unacceptable by that consciousness; with the vital toughness and visionary strength of the angry grandmothers, the fierce market women of the Ibo's Women's War, the marriage-resisting women silk workers of pre-Revolutionary China, the millions of widows, midwives, and the women healers tortured and burned as witches for three centuries in Europe.

- Rich, Adrienne
14.

Mothers are a biological necessity; fathers are a social invention.

- Margaret Mead
15.

He that would the daughter win must with the mother first begin.

- Proverb, English
16.

What we choose to call sanity is a big house where the mad have no mothers.

- The Clown Prince of Darkness
17.

The lullaby is the spell whereby the mother attempts to transform herself back from an ogre to a saint.

- Fenton, James
18.

I believe that always, or almost always, in all childhood and in all the lives that follow them, the mother represents madness. Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.

- Duras, Marguerite
19.

Ah! How neatly tied, in these people, is the umbilical cord of morality! Since they left their mothers they have never sinned, have they? They are apostles, they are the descendants of priests; one can only wonder from what source they draw their indignation, and above all how much they have pocketed to do this, and in any case what it has done for them.

- Artaud, Antonin
20.

Anyone who doesn't miss the past never had a mother.

- Nunn, Gregory
