All that I am or hope to be I owe to my mother.
( Abraham Lincoln )

Thank you for giving me a childhood on which I could build a life.
( Pam Brown )

Gratitude is the hardest of all emotions to express.
There is no word capable of conveying all that one feels.
Until we reach a world where thoughts can be adequately expressed in words,
“thank you” will have to do.

( A.P.Gouthey )

Thank you for keeping me safe within yourself so long.
Sheltering me in my most secret life.
eleasing me at last to independence.
Giving me welcome, teaching me love.
Caring for me through sickness, tears, tantrums and stubborn, sullen silences.
Believing in me… Even at the edges of despair.
( Pam Brown )

Whenever you are happy, I am happy, too.
Because you are an important part of me and my life is intermingled with your life..
I love you.
( Susan Polis Schutz )

My sentiments remain the same.
The feeling of thanks for that grand love of yours towards your child w
hich you displayed so warmly and so tenderly.
( Richard Wagner )

Mothers endure every illness, every grief, every anxiety suffered by their children.
Often powerless to help.

Only able to wait.
To love.

Thank you.
For that love is what I hold on to.

( Pam Brown )

If she hadn’t been there to support and encourage me, I might not have grown up to be the confident person I am.
( Marlo Thomas )

My dear mother.
If you are happy, I have everything I can wish for.

( Thomas Moore )

Thank you for fitting your life to ours.
Thank you for making us feel that nothing that you have achieved is worth more than our love.
Thank you for making us feel wanted, precious, irreplaceable.
Thank you for being you.
( Pam Brown )

My ever-loved mother.
I salute you with my affection once more.

And thank you for bringing me into this world.
And for all your unwearied care over me there.
May God reward you for it.
As assuredly He will and does.

( Thomas Carlyle )

I think my child will need a mother who knows how to say ‘no’.
Maybe because as a small child, I suffered so much.
And I’ll love him so much, that maybe I won’t be able to say ‘no’ either.
( Mario Balotelli )

Human beings are the only creatures on earth that allow their children to come back home.
( Bill Cosby )

When your children are teenagers, it’s important to have a dog so that someone in the house is happy to see you.
( Nora Ephron )

Have you had the chance to listen to the laughter of small children lately?
Take time to listen, and your soul will be refreshed.

A child’s greatest period of growth is the month after you’ve purchased new school uniforms.

My kids are the best thing that ever happened to me.
I know that sounds flipping cheesy but it’s totally true.
They just blew me away.
They make everything worthwhile.

They’re so much fun and so interesting.
It’s such a bloody privilege.

I remember looking at my first baby, just a few days old in her little basket, and I was suddenly very aware of my own mortality.
I’d never thought about dying before.
It’s a weird one.

It signalled my sudden going back to church – that fear of death, it made me go back to praying.
( Mel Giedroyc )

Children really brighten up a household.
They never turn the lights off.

Fond as we are of our children, there comes at times during their absence an unexplainable peace.

A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else.
It knows no law.
( Agatha Christie )

A baby is God’s opinion that life should go on.

Nature makes boys and girls lovely to look upon so they can be tolerated until they acquire some sense.

Children are not able to respond to a love which tries to fashion them according to the concept of an adult, no matter how good the adult’s intention may be.

Children who always have things their own way may sometimes feel that their parents do not love them since they do not care what they do.

Smothering a child by anxious concern over every detail of their life, robbing them of all opportunities to express themselves naturally, may be more crippling than beatings and curses.

The IQs of some children may be lowered if their mums drink just ONE glass of wine a week when they are pregnant.
Babies with some gene defects are affected by even small amounts of alcohol, say researchers.
Alcohol in the womb stays longer in their systems and they show signs of lowered intelligence by the age of eight.
Dr Ron Gray, of Oxford University, said: “Even moderate amounts of alcohol during pregnancy can have an effect.”
