Thoughts for Thursday--Mothers

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

So I'm a week late on the theme again. I tend to do that with holiday themes. I should have done this last week, but oh well! This week's theme is quotes about mother/motherhood.

I remember my mother's prayers and they have always followed me. They have clung to me all of my life.--Abraham Lincoln
Mother is the name for God in the lips and hearts of little children.--William Makepeace Thackeray
A mother's arms are made of tenderness and children sleep soundly in them.--Victor Hugo
Motherhood is...difficult and...rewarding.--Gloria Estefan
All women become like their mothers. That is their tragedy. No man does. That's his.--Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest
I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt. Only more love.--Mother Theresa

So, which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to add?
