What a mother can do …
My mother said to me, "If you become a soldier, you'll be a general; if you become a monk, you'll end up as the pope." Instead I became a painter and wound up as Picasso.
A partially deaf boy came home from school one day carrying a note from officials at the school. The note suggested that the parents take the boy out of school, claiming that he was "too stupid to learn."
The boy's mother read the note and said, "My son Tom isn't 'too stupid to learn.' I'll teach him myself." And so she did. When Tom died many years later, the people of the United States of America paid tribute to him by turning off the nation's lights for one full minute. You see, this Tom had invented the light bulb—and not only that, but motion pictures and the record player. In all, Thomas Edison had more than one thousand patents to his credit.
My mother was the making of me.
—Thomas A. Edison (1847-1931)

rainbows, brothers and sisters,
aunts and cousins...

Life began with waking up
and loving my mother's face.
—George Eliot (1819-1880), British Novelist
Motherhood is the most important
of all the professions...
—Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)
The hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world.
