“There ought to be a hall of fame for mamas

Creation’s most unique and precious pearl

And heaven help us always to remember

That the hand that rocks the cradle rules the world”

Glen Campbell

100 Years of Mothers Day

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.”Abraham Lincoln

“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 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

“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?”Milton Berle

“She raised us with humor, and she raised us to understand that not everything was going to be great—but how to laugh through it.”Liza Minnelli

“Because I feel that, in the Heavens above / The angels, whispering to one another, / Can find, among their burning terms of love / None so devotional as that of ‘Mother’”Edgar Allen Poe
