I’ve already posted several items about my mother (or reposted previous years’ thoughts about her), so I won’t do that yet again. Instead, here are several quotations about mothers. You can make the appropriate applications to your own mother.

Sidney Harris: “The commonest fallacy among women is that simply having children makes one a mother–which is as absurd as believing that having a piano makes one a musician.”

Emily Dickinson: “A mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled.”

Sue Skeen: “A mother is that someone / With a mission from above / Imparting to her children / The image of God’s love.”

William Dean Howells: “A man never sees all that his mother has been to him until it’s too late to let her know that he sees it.”
