Irish proverb

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 troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.
Washington Irving

Your sons and your daughters are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.
Bob Dylan

If I was damned of body and soul,

Mother o' mine, O mother o' mine.

Kahlil Gibran

The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom.
Henry Ward Beecher

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.

A photograph never grows old. You and I change, people change all through the months and years, but a photograph always remains the same.

That is why I think a photograph can be kind.
Albert Einstein

The greatest love is a mother's; then a dog's; then a sweetheart's.

Or kiss the place to make it well?

A mother's love's a blessing, no matter where you roam
Keep her while she's living, you'll miss her when she's gone
Love her as in childhood, though feeble, old and grey
For you'll never miss a mother's love, till she's buried beneath the clay.
Thomas P. Keenan
