The mother, in her office, holds the key
  Of the soul; and she it is who stamps the coin
    Of character, and makes the being who would be a savage,
      But for her gentle cares, a Christian man.
        Then crown her Queen o' the world.
      - Unattributed Author, Old Play

All that I am, my mother made me.
      - John Quincy Adams

Where there is a mother in the house, matters speed well.
      - Amos Bronson Alcott

Would, Mother, thou couldst hear me tell
  How oft, amid my brief career,
    For sins and follies lov'd too well,
      Hath fallen the free, repentant tear.
        And, in the waywardness of youth,
          How better thoughts have given to me
            Contempt for error, love for truth,
              'Mid sweet remembrances of thee.
      - James Aldrich

Any mother could perform the jobs of several air-traffic controllers with ease.
      - Lisa Alther

To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power.
      - Maya Angelou

A man's mother is his misfortune, but his wife is his fault.
      - Walter Bagehot

There is a sight all hearts beguiling--
  A youthful mother to her infant smiling,
    Who with spread arms and dancing feet,
      A cooing voice, returns its answer sweet.
      - Joanna Baillie

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

Never say anything on the phone that you wouldn't want your mother to hear at your trial.
      - Sydney Biddle Barrows

If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there are men on base.
      - Dave Barry

The future of society is in the hands of the mothers. If the world was lost through woman, she alone can save it.
      - Louis de Beaufort

A mother has, perhaps, the hardest earthly lot; and yet no mother worthy of the name ever gave herself thoroughly for her child who did not feel that, after all, she reaped what she had sown.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

A mother is as different from anything else that God ever thought of, as can possibly be. She is a distinct and individual creation.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

A mother's prayers, silent and gentle, can never miss the road to the throne of all bounty.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

At first babes feed on the mother's bosom, but always on her heart.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

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

When God thought of mother, He must have laughed with satisfaction, and framed it quickly--so rich, so deep, so divine, so full of soul, power, and beauty, was the conception.
      - Henry Ward Beecher

Mother is far too clever to understand anything she does not like.
      - Arnold Bennett (Enoch Arnold Bennett)

My mother!--manhood's anxious brow
  And sterner cares have long been mine,
    Yet turn I to thee fondly now,
      As when upon thy bosom's shrine
        My infant griefs were gently hush'd to rest,
          And thy low whisper'd prayers my slumber blessed.
      - George W. Bethune

A mother's love is indeed the golden link that binds youth to age; and he is still but a child, however time may have furrowed his cheek, or silvered his brow, who can yet recall, with a softened heart, the fond devotion or the gentle chidings of the best friend that God ever gives us.
      - Christian Nestell Bovee

Nature's loving proxy, the watchful mother.
      - Edward George Earle Lytton Bulwer-Lytton, 1st Baron Lytton

No language can express the power and beauty and heroism of a mother's love.
      - Edwin Hubbell Chapin

I miss thee, my mother! thy image is still
  The deepest impress'd on my heart,
    And the tablet so faithful in death must be chill,
      Ere a line of that image depart.
      - Eliza Cook

I miss thee, my mother, when young health has fled.
  And I sink in the languor of pain,
    Where, where is the arm that once pillowed my head,
      And the ear that once heard me complain?
        Other hands may support me, gentle accents may fall--
          For the fond and the true are still mine:
            I've a blessing for each; I am grateful to all,--
              But whose care can be soothing as thine?
      - Eliza Cook
