The Love of a Mother
By Helen Steiner Rice

It takes a Mother's Love
To make a house a home
A place to be remembered,
No matter where we roam.

It takes a Mother's patience
To bring a child up right,
And her courage and her cheerfulness
To make a dark day bright.

It takes a Mother's thoughtfulness
To mend the heart's deep hurts,
And her skill and her endurance
To mend little socks and shirts.

It takes a Mother's kindness
To forgive us when we err,
To sympathize in trouble
And bow her head in prayer.

It takes a Mother's wisdom
To recognize our needs,
And to give us reassurance
By her loving words and deeds.

It takes a Mother's endless faith,
Her confidence and trust,
To guide us through the pitfalls
Of selfishness and lust.

And that is why in all this world
There could not be another,
Who could fulfill God's purpose
As completely as a Mother

A Freudian slip is when you say one thing but mean your mother. ~Author Unknown




Women's Liberation is just a lot of foolishness. It's the men who are discriminated against. They can't bear children. And no one's likely to do anything about that. ~Golda Meir




The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes

Motherhood is priced
Of God, at price no man may dare
To lessen or misunderstand.

Are heard in Mother, Home, and Heaven.

I love my mother as the trees love water and sunshine - she helps me grow, prosper, and reach great heights. ~Terri Guillemets




[A] mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled. ~Emily Dickinson




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 who rejoice with us in our sunshine 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




Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease. ~Lisa Alther

A mom forgives us all our faults, not to mention one or two we don't even have. ~Robert Brault, www.robertbrault.com

is a poem to my mother.

And hushed me in her arms to rest,
And on my cheek sweet kisses prest?
My Mother.

Who ran to help me when I fell,
And would some pretty story tell,
Or kiss the place to make it well?
My mother.

Of tying sashes, fitting baby shoes,
And stringing pretty words that make no sense,
And kissing full sense into empty words.

A man's work is from sun to sun, but a mother's work is never done. ~Author Unknown




One of the very few reasons I had any respect for my mother when I was thirteen was because she would reach into the sink with her bare hands - bare hands - and pick up that lethal gunk and drop it into the garbage. To top that, I saw her reach into the wet garbage bag and fish around in there looking for a lost teaspoon. Bare hands - a kind of mad courage. ~Robert Fulghum




One lamp - thy mother's love - amid the stars
Shall lift its pure flame changeless, and before
The throne of God, burn through eternity -
Holy - as it was lit and lent thee here.

Relentlessly she understands you.

Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,
None so devotional as that of "Mother,"
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.
