The internet is full of thousands of different Mother’s Day quotes. However, most of them are a bit stretched or a bit too commonly used. Which is why, we at My Pooja Box, decided to take the responsibility of going through this nearly endless list of Mother’s Day quotes on the internet to narrow it down to the best of the best. So that you can add these quotes to your personal messages that go along with the Mother’s Day gifts and greeting cards you give.
Our personal favourite Mother’s Day quotes have been listed below –
1. “My mother was my role model before I even knew what that word was.” – Lisa Leslie
We personally love this quote because of just how to true it is. As a child, especially as a daughter, your mother is always going to be a super hero to you. Not just when you’re a kid but as you grow older too. Only with age is one truly able to comprehend what their mothers have done for them and how their moms have shaped them for the better.
2. "The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation.” —James E. Faust
Just think about it, every action your mother has taken for you or with you has shaped your life to be what it is today. And if you are where you want to be, the first person you should thank, is your mother.
3. "Youth fades; love droops; the leaves of friendship fall; A mother’s secret hope outlives them all.” —Oliver Wendell Holmes
No matter what the situation, your mother will always be there backing you. Even if she doesn’t explicitly say so, she cares and is hoping for the best. Another reason this makes our list of top 10 Mother’s Day quotes, is the poetic feel brought in by Mr. Oliver Wendell Holmes.
4. "Once you're a mom, you're always a mom. It's like riding a bike, you never forget" – Taraji P.Henson
No matter how old you get, no matter how mature, your mom will always be your mother and she will never forget how to help her child. Mothers have a way of helping you in situations you least expect. So, use this quote to thank her for not forgetting how to be a good mother.
5. "All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." – Abraham Lincoln
These are the words of one of America’s greatest ever leaders. Even though Abraham Lincoln reached heights that only 99.99% of the world can only dream of. He never forgot who he had to thank for it. You shouldn’t either…
6. "A mother understands what a child does not say." – Origins Unknown
This one makes our list because we’re sure everyone can remember a moment in their life where their mothers figured something out without being given any information. Always remember, you came from your mother and she will always know you better than you think.
7. A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take. – Cardinal Meymillod
This, unfortunately, is something people only realize after losing or breaking ties with their mother. So always cherish your time with your mother and show her the respect she deserves… not just on mother’s day but every day she graces you with her presence.
8. "Life doesn’t come with a manual; it comes with a mother." – Origins unknown.
As a stark contrast to the previous quote, this one is a little bit more cheerful but no less true. The one who taught you to walk, talk and do everything you know is of course your mother. So, don’t forget that and let her know how much you appreciate everything she’s done for you.
9. "The best place to cry is your mother’s arms" – Jodi Picoult
If you’re going through a dark phase in your life, no one will be able to comfort you better than your mother. A mother is more willing to listen to you than your closest friends will ever be and like it or not, she knows you better too. So next time you’re looking for comfort, consult your mother. Not only will she be grateful you came to her, she’ll be able to help you better than anyone else you know.
10. "If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way your mom told you in the beginning" – Origins Unknown
This one makes the list because it made everyone at My Pooja Box laugh. Literally all of us could come up with an instant where we tried doing it our way, only to fail and end up realizing our mothers were right. So next time, maybe try it her way first….
