Mother’s Day, 2024

Yesterday was Mother’s Day. While such a day is not mentioned in the Bible, and in fact, only made it onto the U.S. calendar in 1914, many mothers are mentioned and honored. In fact, the sixth commandment says to “honor your mother” (Exodus 20:12). In honor and memory of mothers, here are a few of my favorite mother quotes:

  • “Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all.” —Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • “Mother is one to whom you hurry when you are troubled.” —Emily Dickinson
  • “Motherhood: All love begins and ends there. ” —Robert Browning
  • “God could not be everywhere, and therefore he made mothers.” —Rudyard Kipling
  • “There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.” —Chinese Proverb
  • “Life doesn’t come with a manual; it comes with a mother.” — Unknown
  • No list of quotes on motherhood would be complete without a quote from Erma Bombeck: “When my kids become wild and unruly, I use a nice, safe playpen. When they’re finished, I climb out.”
  • And my mother’s favorite line: no matter how difficult the circumstances, her response was, “It will be better tomorrow.”   Most of the time, she was correct.
