Mothers quotes
Mothers
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework - an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.

- Betty Friedan
Ridicule often checks what is absurd, and fully as often smothers that which is noble.

- Scott, Sir Walter
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
Teach me to do the best I can To help and cheer my fellowman; Teach me to lose my selfish need, And glory in the larger deed, Which smothers the road and lights the day, For all who chance to come my way.

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

- Aristotle
Let France have good mothers, and she will have good sons.

- Bonaparte, Napoleon
Babies don't need fathers, but mothers do. Someone who is taking care of a baby needs to be taken care of.

- Amy Heckerling
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
Strange new problems are being reported in the growing generations of children whose mothers were always there, driving them around, helping them with their homework --an inability to endure pain or discipline or pursue any self-sustained goal of any sort, a devastating boredom with life.

- Friedan, Betty
How we dwelt in two worlds the daughters and the mothers in the kingdom of the sons.

- Rich, Adrienne
A man never sees all that his mother has been to him until it's too late to let her know he sees it.

- Howells, William Dean
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
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
Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.

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

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

- The Clown Prince of Darkness
Motherhood is the strangest thing, it can be like being one's own Trojan horse.

- West, Rebecca
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
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
Young women especially have something invested in being nice people, and it's only when you have children that you realize you're not a nice person at all, but generally a selfish bully.

- Weldon, Fay
