Best Love Quotes for Moms

The Life of a Mom

Being a mom and a daughter is never easy and neither role is ever easy. Over the years I have stored up quite a few quotes to help me along on this mommy journey. Some quotes make me think, some sayings make me laugh and then there are others that tug at my heart. So, I thought it might be fun to share some mommy wisdom, especially with mothers day right around the corner.

There are many different names for mother, some call her mum, or mom, or mommy or mamma, or just plain ma. But, we all have a special place in our hearts for our mothers. Here are a few of my favorite quotes about being a mom . . psst... If you know some good sayings maybe you can share yours too!

Of all the things that come in numbers; plenty of rainbows, stars in the sky, brothers, sisters, aunts, uncles cousins, you have but one mother.

Quotes About Mom

The Mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requires the most intense love on the mother's side, yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother and to become fully independent.~ Erich Fromm

The most important thing a father can do for his children is to love their mother.~ Author Unknown

"No gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you – life." ~ Unknown

"A mother holds her children's hands for a while...their hearts forever. 
~ Author Unknown

And what do we teach our children? We teach them that two and two make four, and that Paris is the capital of France . .When will we also teach them what they are? . . ."“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one”

“Only mothers can think of the future - because they give birth to it in their children"

A Mothers Heart

The heart of a mother is a deep abyss at the bottom of which you will always find forgiveness.
~ Honore de Balzac

Making the decision to have a child - it's momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
~ Elizabeth Stone

~ Sophia Loren

Of all the rights of women, the greatest is to be a mother.
~ Lin Yutang


The country clubs, the cars, the boats,
Your assets may be ample,
But the best inheritance
You can leave your kids
Is to be a good example.
- Barry Spilchuk

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 she will 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 next best thing you can give your children ,  next to good habits are memories

      I am really touched by this hub and this time honestly have no words to praise you. Amazing hub. Have bookmarked it. Seriously, I think no language would have any appropriate word to describe you and the beauty and passion with which you do your hubs. They are not appealing to the eye but also are a wealth of information. I am learning a lot from you and would continue to learn.

      Rated Up!!!

      Another wonderful hub wavegirl. I don't know how it goes around the world, but usually here when someone is really sick one of the words usually said is "Mum". At the end who cares about children during all their lives? Who is the person always there for you? A mum. Luckily mine is and has always been. Rated and stumbled. ;)
