For Mother's Day

‘Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.’–US author Elizabeth Stone

‘You don’t really understand human nature unless you know why a child on a merry-go-round will wave at his parents every time around—and why his parents will always wave back.’
–newspaper columnist William Tammeus

‘A young boy said to his mother, “How old were you when I was born?”
His mother replied, “23.”
“Wow, that’s a lot of time we missed spending together.”’

‘The most common 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.’
–US writer Sydney Harris

‘A mother is a person who, seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.’

‘A man loves his sweetheart the most, his wife the best, but his mother the longest.’
–Irish proverb

‘I’d like to be the ideal mother, but I’m too busy raising my kids.’
–comedian Phyllis Diller

‘A little girl was asked where her home was. She replied, “Where Mother is.”’
–Christian writer Keith L. Brooks

I got these from my friend Kevin's blog who works for Compassion International in Bangladesh.
