21 thought-provoking quotes about mothers


Being a mother is probably the most challenging and daunting job on earth, particularly if you have to do it alone.

However nothing’s more important than motherhood because without mothers there would not be a next generation or indeed future generations. Without mothers the human race would disappear.

A mother’s love nurtures the people of tomorrow. And for that we all owe mothers the greatest debt of gratitude.

There could not be a more important job than being a mother, surely? That’s why mothers have such a special place in our hearts. Working careers are all very well but motherhood matters more, or at least it should do.

Fathers matter too of course, but mothers are truly very special.

So today I offer you 21 thought-provoking quotes about mothers to underline my point.

Ladies, if you’re a mother then remember this; the world owes you its gratitude. For without your love and hard work bringing up well-adjusted young people, the human race would cease to exist.

That’s why I believe that no job is more important than the role of mother. Your children are your legacy and your gift to the future.
