MOTHER QUOTES


Ambrose Bierce
Sweater: Garment worn by child when its mother is feeling chilly

Bill Cosby
Even General Patton would have lacked the courage to give his mother soap-on-a-rope.

Bill Cosby
Look at anything that gives birth: eventually it will run and hide. After a while, even a mother elephant will run away from its child and hide. And when you consider how hard it is for a mother elephant to hide, you can appreciate the depth of her motivation.

Bill Cosby
Mothers who have experience in the trenches of family warfare are sometimes even driven to what I call anticipatory parenting. They ask a child a question, he tries to answer, and they say, “You shut up! When I ask you a question, you keep your mouth shut! You think I'm talking to hear myself talk? Answer me!”

Bill Cosby
Mothers,  in fact, organize the day (Mother's Day) as precisely as Patton planned and attack. They make a list of things they want, summon their children, and say, “Go see your father, get some money from him, and surprise me with some of these.

Erma Bombeck
Giving birth is little more than a set of muscular contractions granting passage of a child. Then the mother is born.

Erma Bombeck
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.

Erma Bombeck
When your mother asks, "Do you want a piece of advice?" it's a mere formality. It doesn't matter if you answer yes or no. You're going to get it anyway.

Honore de Balzac
A child is tied to our heart-strings, as the spheres are linked to their creator; we cannot think of God except as a mother's heart writ large. 

Honore de Balzac
A mother, who is really a mother, is never free.
