The Most Inspiring Sayings About Mothers

Being a mother is no easy job. The hours are brutal, you get very few or no breaks, vacations are spent working and on the run, and calling in sick just doesn’t work. That said, motherhood is the most rewarding job there is. In celebration of moms, we collected inspiring quotes from well-known sources.

To celebrate all aspects of motherhood, we captured quotes from some famous sources celebrating the magic and beauty of being a mom.

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

“But kids don't stay with you if you do it right. It's the one job where, the better you are, the more surely you won't be needed in the long run.”
― Barbara Kingsolver, ”Pigs in Heaven”

“The best way to keep children at home is to make the home atmosphere pleasant, and let the air out of the tires.”
― Dorothy Parker

“Motherhood: All love begins and ends there.”
— Robert Browning

“To describe my mother would be to write about a hurricane in its perfect power. Or the climbing, falling colors of a rainbow.”
— Maya Angelou

“Love as powerful as your mother’s for you leaves its own mark … to have been loved so deeply … will give us some protection forever.”
—J.K. Rowling

“When they’ve finished reading, Olivia’s mother gives her a kiss and says, ‘You know, you really wear me out. But I love you anyway.’ And Olivia gives her a kiss back and says, ‘I love you anyway too.'”
—Ian Falcone, “Olivia”

“When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child.”
—Sophia Loren

“Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials.”
—Meryl Streep

“The days are long, but the years are short.”
— Gretchen Rubin

“I think every working mom probably feels the same thing: You go through big chunks of time where you’re just thinking, ‘This is impossible — oh, this is impossible.’ And then you just keep going and keep going, and you sort of do the impossible.”
—Tina Fey

“Making the decision to have a child—it is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body. ”
― Elizabeth Stone

“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.”
– Jill Churchill

“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

“Mother’s love is bliss, is peace, it need not be acquired, it need not be deserved. If it is there, it is like a blessing; if it is not there it is as if all the beauty had gone out of life.”
—Erich Fromm

“Grown don’t mean nothing to a mother. A child is a child. They get bigger, older, but grown. In my heart it don’t mean a thing.”
— Toni Morrison
