Mothers are the pride of human race; our world would have gone extinct without their kind nature, perseverance and unequaled love, even when it’s undeserved.
“Mother’s love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved,” wrote Erich Fromm.
Mothers have a heart of gold. For this reason, a host of noble men like Washington Irving and Abraham Lincoln, including my humble self and many honest others, have never stopped appreciating women for who they are — an embodiment of awesomeness.
Mother’s Day is celebrated annually around the world but there’s so much more we can do to treasure this wonderful gender who brought us the greatest of all gifts.
Mothers gave us life, protected us from death at all costs, yet fed us with blood, sweat and tears. They risked their lives so we can have ours even though we failed to admit the truth on many occasions, in our thoughts and deeds. No apologies would be too much for this grave error.
Haven’t women suffered enough injustice from our biased constitutions and unreliable security agencies?
Do we, as lucky people brought to life through a woman’s grace, need to sacrifice our only redemption out of sheer ingratitude?
Women deserve more than just a “Mother’s Day Celebration.”
Here are some famous quotes from people who understood what motherhood truly stands for:
- Napoleon Bonaparte
Let France have good mothers, and she will have good sons.
- Elizabeth Barrett Browning
Women know the way to rear up children (to be just). They know a simple, merry, tender knack of tying sashes, fitting baby-shoes, and stringing pretty words that make no sense. And kissing full sense into empty words.
- Elizabeth Stone
Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.
Mothers are fonder than fathers of their children because they are more certain they are their own.
- George Eliot
A mother’s yearning feels the presence of the cherished child even in the degraded man.
- Abraham Lincoln
All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel Mother.
A Mother Is:
Loving hands quickly reach
Each time she hears a cry
Lifting up to comfort
And kiss the tears all dry
Weary eyes refusing sleep
Stay the whole night through
Her child is sick and hurting
Her tender care is due
The many tasks all done in love
To make it through each day
Seem to go unnoticed
Till she is gone away
A Mother is that someone
With a mission from above
Imparting to her children
The image of God’s love
