Kahlil Gibran quote: Mother... the most beautiful word on the lips of mankind. - Spiritual Quotes To Live By
Joey & Emma (2012)

These quotes about mothers are all positive, inspirational words of wisdom and love, including some from the perspective of being a mother.

I was eighteen when I became a mother, but not once have I regretted having children at a young age. Being a mother is definitely the greatest experience and joy of my life.

My daughter Julie was such a delightful happy baby, we soon had another, Kevin came along the following year and Emma three years later. I would have liked to have had more children, but it was not to be.

However, time moves on fast and at the age of thirty-six I became a grandmother, since then there have been nine more bundles of joy added to my family, so now my life is blessed with so many to cherish and love.

Mother’s Hand
As a little girl I held your hand tightly
for the world was a scary place.
As the years went by our clasp loosened
as I became eager to explore.
Then the day came that we both let go
and I was able to walk alone.

Whatever I have faced in my life
I’ve known your hand is always there
for me to hold, if I need.
The warmth of your love
and guidance of your hand
has steered me through the crowd of life
to bring me through.

Now as the years pass
I hold my hand out to you
for I will always be there ~
if you ever need me.
Take my hand and together
we can walk the rest of the path.

Trina Graves 1961

Those Moments I Treasure
With each new day as I awoke
Like a spark I’d remember you were here
A smile would warm my face and heart
Those moments I treasure, so clear

I counted the weeks as they passed by
Your presence I felt growing strong
My joy and excitement thinking of you
Those moments I treasure my life long

You wriggled and kicked more powerfully each month
My body stretching as it nurtured your growth
Blossoming too was my complete devotion to you
Those moments I treasure, unconditional love my oath

Then the moment arrived for us to meet face-to-face
Time stood still with a tangible sense of awe
The miracle of pregnancy and birth is a blessing in life
Those moments I treasure forever more

Now the years have passed and you are grown
But my memory of pure Bliss can still bring a tear
When you were first place in my arms
That moment I treasure most dear

You are: my Joy, my Precious, my Beloved, my Life
I’ve loved you unconditionally right from the start
Though life separates us, our love continues and unites
Our moments I treasure – Eternally you are part of my heart

H Quotes About Mothers

There is nothing we can do in this lifetime that will compare to the importance of this work. These little ones are our future. Guard them well!

I feel a total kindred spirit with anyone who has lost her mother, especially at a young age. When something like that happens it leaves a hole in your heart that can never be filled.

But I do know that the hole in my heart pushed me to want to become the best mother I could be.

The same way as the Hopis sing to their corn to make it grow, so should we sing to our whole being, to our body, to our eyes, to our heart, to our mind, to all our helpers of life, the trillions of little cells who work together to make us life. A mother sings to her child. She as very good reason for doing that. A couple sings and dances when falling in love. The whole world must become a Paradise and learn to sing and dance together. World cooperation must take the form of a festival, of a joyous love event.
Robert Muller 1923 – 2010
