slide2
A mother is someone who guides and inspires.

She helps us to attain our dreams and desires.

Wisdom and insight are part of her way,

and her faith in her children brightens their days.

What is a

Mother?

slide3
All mothers are rich when they love their children. There are no poor mothers, no ugly ones, no old ones. Their love is always the most beautiful of joys.

—Maurice Maeterlinck (1862-1949)

slide4
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.

slide5
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)

slide6
An ounce of mother is worth a pound of clergy.

You may have tangible wealth untold;       Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold.       Richer than I you can never be—       I had a mother who read to me.

—Strickland Gillian (1869-1954)

slide7
The role of a mother is probably the most

important career a woman can have.

—Janet Mary Riley (1915- ), U.S. Lawyer and Writer

slide8
...but only one

MOTHER

in the

whole world.

Most of all the other beautiful

things in life come by twos and

threes, by dozens and hundreds.

Plenty of roses, stars, sunsets,

rainbows, brothers and sisters,

aunts and cousins...

—Kate Douglas Wiggin (1856-1923), U.S. Author and Educator

slide9
Life began with waking up

and loving my mother's face.

—George Eliot (1819-1880), British Novelist

slide10
Motherhood is the most important

of all the professions...

...requiring

more

knowledge

than any

other

department

in human

affairs.

—Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902)

slide11
The hand that rocks the cradle

Is the hand that rules the world.

—William Ross Wallace (1819-1881), U.S. Poet and Songwriter
