Mothers

"I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all my life."

-- Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865)

"My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from her."

-- George Washington (1732-1799)

"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

" Who is it that loves me and will love me forever with an affection which no chance, no misery, no crime of mine can do away? — It is you, my mother."

-- Thomas Carlyle
