The most important thing she'd learned over the years was that there was no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.
Sooner or later we all quote our mothers.
If you can give your son or daughter only one gift, let it be enthusiasm.
People who say they sleep like a baby usually don't have one.
Leo J. Burke
The moment a child is born,
the mother is also born.
She never existed before.
The woman existed, but the mother, never.
A mother is something absolutely new.
Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children and no theories.
The phrase "working mother" is redundant.
You don't raise heroes, you raise sons. And if you treat them like sons, they'll turn out to be heroes, even if it's just in your own eyes.
~Walter M. Schirra, Sr.
