MOTHERS Quotes

"Children are our future, and their mothers are its guardians.
~ Kofi Annan

-- Joan Blades

-- Joan Blades

-- Erma Bombeck

* "As a doctor, as well as a mother and a world citizen, I wish to practice the ultimate form of preventive medicine by ridding the earth of these technologies that propagate disease, suffering, and death."
-- Helen Caldicott

Before you were here an hour I would die for you
This is the miracle of life.
-- Maureen Hawkins

Women do not have to sacrifice personhood if they are mothers. They do not have to sacrifice motherhood in order to be persons. Liberation was meant to expand women's opportunities, not to limit them. The self-esteem that has been found in new pursuits can also be found in mothering."
-- Elaine Heffner

"Mama exhorted her children at every opportunity to 'jump at de sun.' We might not land on the sun, but at least we would get off the ground."
-- Zora Neale Hurston

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

* The message of our campaign is "Make every mother and child count". This campaign is not just about health. It is also a powerful call for radical progress in women's rights and the rights of their children. Too often, the health of mothers and children does not count. In too many parts of the world, they are forgotten.
-- Liya Kebede

"I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love and duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting and challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best I could bring to it."
-- Rose Kennedy

Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.
-- Barbara Kingsolver

The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.
-- Jessica Lange

* We have an opportunity to focus global attention on what should be obvious: every mother, and every child, counts. They count because we value every human life. The evidence is clear that healthy mothers and children are the bedrock of healthy and prosperous communities and nations.
~ Dr. LEE Jong-wook, WHO Secretary-General

"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
-- Abraham Lincoln

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts.
A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.
-- Sophia Loren

I believe it is our obligation, as mothers, to get peace into our classrooms so our children can study, learn and practice peace. Then, and only then, can we rest assured they will fulfill their divine destinies as peacemakers and the world will become a more peaceful place.
-- Debbie Robins

Motherhood changed me because it is so fundamental what you're doing for another person. And you are able to do even though it takes a lot.
-- Meg Ryan

When motherhood becomes the fruit of a deep yearning, not the result of ignorance or accident, its children will become the foundation of a new race.
-- Margaret Sanger

if you can just see all the children of the world as your own, all the mothers of the world as you are, we can make a huge difference.
-- Susan Sarandon

-- Claudia Schiffer

Everything gets reduced to essentials.”

-- Alice Walker

-- Rachel Weisz

Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother.
-- Oprah Winfrey

Mama was my greatest teacher, a teacher of compassion, love and fearlessness. If love is sweet as a flower, then my mother is that sweet flower of love.
-- Stevie Wonder
