My mother raised me, and then freed me.

A father may turn his back on his child, brothers and sisters may become inveterate enemies, husbands may desert their wives, wives their husbands. But a mother's love endures through all.

Washington Irving

Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.


All that I am or hope to be I owe to my angel mother.

Abraham Lincoln

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

Abraham Lincoln
