Mother’s Day Book Quotes

Happy Mother’s Day! To all the great moms out there, thank you for loving, caring, and supporting us crazy kids. We wouldn’t be the successful, book addicts that we are today without you. To show some love, here are some book quotes just for mom.

“I have a sister, so I know-that relationship, it’s all about fairness: you want your sibling to have exactly what you have-the same amount of toys, the same number of meatballs on your spaghetti, the same share of love. But being a mother is completely different. You want your child to have more than you ever did. You want to build a fire underneath her and watch her soar. It’s bigger than words.”   – Jodi Picoult, My Sister’s Keeper

“Behind all your stories is always your mother’s story. Because hers is where yours begin.”   – Mitch Albom, For One More Day

“Because I feel that in the heavens above
The angels, whispering one to another,
Can find among their burning tears of love,
None so devotional as that of “Mother,”
Therefore, by that dear name I have long called you,
You who are more than mother unto me.”
Edgar Allen Poe, To My Mother

A quote in honor of Mother's Day.:

“Mothers are all slightly insane.”- J.D. Salinger, Catcher in the Rye

“Pride is one of the seven deadly sins; but it cannot be the pride of a mother in her children, for that is a compound of two cardinal virtues — faith and hope.” – Charles Dickens

Motherhood is a choice you make everyday, to put someone else’s happiness and well-being ahead of your own, to teach the hard lessons, to do the right thing even when you’re not sure what the right thing is…and to forgive yourself, over and over again, for doing everything wrong.”- Donna Ball, At Home on Ladybug Farm

“You were my home, Mother. I had no home but you”- Janet Finch, White Oleander

A New Season of Motherhood : Why I decided to

“A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path.”- Agatha Christie, The Last Séance

“Mom had the kind of love for her that you could feel, like it was part of the atmosphere.”- Peter Abrahams, Down the Rabbit Hole

I will look after you and I will look after anybody you say needs to be looked after, any way you say. I am here. I brought my whole self to you. I am your mother.”- Maya Angelou, Mom & Me & Mom
