I love quotes because they are mostly words of wisdom. Some quotes make me think really hard, some are just damn funny and some don’t even make sense. I thought I’d share my five favourite quotes on the definition of a mother with you.
“If I were asked to define Motherhood. I would have defined it as Love in its purest form. Unconditional Love.” – Revathi Sankaran
“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 endeavour by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts.” ― Washington Irving
“The only love that I really believe in is a mother’s love for her children.” ― Karl Lagerfeld
“In a child’s eyes, a mother is a goddess. She can be glorious or terrible, benevolent or filled with wrath, but she commands love either way. I am convinced that this is the greatest power in the universe.” ― N.K. Jemisin
“Children are knives, my mother once said. They don’t mean to, but they cut. And yet we cling to them, don’t we, we clasp them until the blood flows.” ― Joanne Harris
