So much has been written about mothers that it’s easy to find some heart-warming quotes on the woman we call mom. Mothers play such an important role in life that it’s fun to think of them in a humorous way. Oftentimes humor is the thing that gets us through a difficult situation. Hopefully these hand-selected quotes will put a smile on your face and make you think happy thoughts when thinking about your mom, or yourself if you’re a mom:
“The phrase ‘working mother’ is redundant.” – Jane Sellman This quote really hits it on the head. Moms work by nature and with a growing trend towards more women with children joining the workforce, the term working mother has never been more in use. It is redundant, like hot water heater. A mother’s work is never done, and then she piles more on top of it by pursuing a career. Single moms have it especially tough.
“Some mothers are kissing mothers and some are scolding mothers, but it is love just the same, and most mothers kiss and scold together.” – Pearl S. Buck Mothers have to walk the fine line between love and tough love. When your mother scolds you, it may feel like the whole world is crashing down, but at the bottom of your soul you know that she still loves you, and that she is doing this out of love to teach you how to live.
“All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That’s his.” – Oscar Wilde This quote is very good and brings to light that each of us strives not to be like their parents, but eventually we either do or we don’t.
“If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?” – Milton Berle This is a fantastic quote that pokes fun at the evolution debate while at the same time sings praise to a mother’s ability to get fantastic amounts of work done with just the two hands she was given. It’s almost as if she has eyes in the back of her head and a third or fourth hand to help her get everything done that’s needed.
“Any mother could perform the jobs of several air traffic controllers with ease.” – Lisa Alther Another great quote that paints a rather strong image of how much mothers are able to do. With all of the activities they have to plan, and all of the kids they have to run back and forth to their different schools and appointments it’s a wonder how they keep it all straight.
