Working mothers do an hour more per day than working fathers do and working mothers do on average an hour more per day with the kids than working fathers do.
No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.
Mothers - especially single mothers - are heroic in their efforts to raise our nation's children, but men must also take responsibility for their children and recognize the impact they have on their families' well-being.
How simple a thing it seems to me that to know ourselves as we are, we must know our mothers names.
All the laws and legislation in the world will never heal this world like the loving hearts and arms of mothers and fathers. If every child could drift to sleep feeling wrapped in the love of their family - and God's love - this world would be a far more gentle and better place.
By and large, mothers and housewives are the only workers who do not have regular time off. They are the great vacationless class.
Anne Morrow Lindbergh
If there were no schools to take the children away from home part of the time, the insane asylums would be filled with mothers.
E. W. Howe
A professional soldier understands that war means killing people, war means maiming people, war means families left without fathers and mothers.
Most mothers are instinctive philosophers.
Harriet Beecher Stowe
The real religion of the world comes from women much more than from men - from mothers most of all, who carry the key of our souls in their bosoms.
Oliver Wendell Holmes, Sr.
Even as we enumerate their shortcomings, the rigor of raising children ourselves makes clear to us our mothers' incredible strength. We fear both. If they are not strong, who will protect us? If they are not imperfect, how can we equal them?
Mothers are the necessity of invention.
I made a crash landing here on Earth on February 14, 1962, in the Shreveport Catholic Charities Home for un-wed mothers. The infamous Bonnie and Clyde lost their lives just miles from where I was born. Like outlaws ourselves, my birth mother and I were on the run from the day she found out I was part of her.
Children love their mothers. Especially with a boy child and his mother, there's a bond that's unbreakable.
I hope my tongue in prune juice smothers, If I belittle dogs and mothers.
I feel like there are women who are genuinely born to be mothers, and women who are born to be aunties, and women who really probably not should be allowed near children. The tragedy that happens is when any one of those women ends up in the wrong category.
Mothers and children are human beings, and they will sometimes do the wrong thing.
They say geniuses mostly have great mothers. They mostly have sad fates.
D. H. Lawrence
Our mothers put God first when they fill their highest mission within the walls of their own homes.
Ezra Taft Benson
It is well for us that we are born babies in intellect. Could we understand half what mothers say and do to their infants, we should be filled with a conceit of our own importance, which would render us insupportable through life.
When I was a deacon, the ominous signs of the Great Depression began to appear. Tens of thousands lost their jobs. Money was scarce. Families had to do without. Some young people did not ask their mothers, 'What's for dinner?' because they knew all too well that their cupboards held very little.
Joseph B. Wirthlin
Mothers are supposed to listen and, afterward, to respond with some wisdom and perspective, but these things were not my mother's strong suit.
I grew up in a makeup chair. And to see the women around me getting ready was so aspirational. It's about mothers and daughters, a girl watching her mom at a vanity table.
We should recognize that women become mothers the moment they are pregnant.
One could not be a successful scientist without realizing that, in contrast to the popular conception supported by newspapers and mothers of scientists, a goodly number of scientists are not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid.
James D. Watson
Martin Luther King, Jr.
John F. Kennedy
