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

- Nunn, Gregory
Maternity is on the face of it an unsociable experience. The selfishness that a woman has learned to stifle or to dissemble where she alone is concerned, blooms freely and unashamed on behalf of her offspring.

- Putnam, Emily James
The mother as a social servant instead of a home servant will not lack in true mother duty. From her work, loved and honored though it is, she will return to her home life, the child life, with an eager, ceaseless pleasure, cleansed of all the fret and fraction and weariness that so mar it now.

- Gillman, Charlotte P.
The lullaby is the spell whereby the mother attempts to transform herself back from an ogre to a saint.

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

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
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
Between persons of equal income there is no social distinction except the distinction of merit. Money is nothing: character, conduct, and capacity are everything. There would be great people and ordinary people and little people, but the great would always be those who had done great things, and never the idiots whose mothers had spoiled them and whose fathers had left them a hundred thousand a year; and the little would be persons of small minds and mean characters, and not poor persons who had never had a chance. That is why idiots are always in favor of inequality of income (their only chance of eminence), and the really great in favor of equality.

- Shaw, George Bernard
Morality and its victim, the mother -- what a terrible picture! Is there indeed anything more terrible, more criminal, than our glorified sacred function of motherhood?

- Goldman, Emma
Men never think, at least seldom think, what a hard task it is for us women to go through this very often. God's will be done, and if He decrees that we are to have a great number of children why we must try to bring them up as useful and exemplary members of society.

- Victoria, Queen
The watchful mother tarries nigh, though sleep has closed her infants eyes.

- Keble, John
Few misfortunes can befall a boy which bring worse consequences than to have a really affectionate mother.

- Maugham, W. Somerset
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
How we dwelt in two worlds the daughters and the mothers in the kingdom of the sons.

- Rich, Adrienne
Fathers and mothers have lost the idea that the highest aspiration they might have for their children is for them to be wise... specialized competence and success are all that they can imagine.

- Bloom, Allan
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
Motherhood is the strangest thing, it can be like being one's own Trojan horse.

- West, Rebecca
No fathers or mothers think their own children ugly.

- Cervantes, Miguel De
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
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
