Without hard work, nothing grows but weeds.
Know or listen to those who know.
After a storm comes a calm.
If you're going through hell, keep going.
If you've got a talent, protect it.
Expect problems and eat them for breakfast.
Quality is not an act, it is a habit.
Always desire to learn something useful.
Only the educated are free.
The dog that trots about finds a bone.

The natural state of motherhood is unselfishness. When you become a mother, you are no longer the center of your own universe. You relinquish that position to your children.
My mother had a great deal of trouble with me, but I think she enjoyed it.
Men are what their mothers made them.
My mother said to me, 'If you are a soldier, you will become a general. If you are a monk, you will become the Pope.' Instead, I was a painter, and became Picasso.

Only God Himself fully appreciates the influence of a Christian mother in the molding of character in her children.
That strong mother doesn't tell her cub, Son, stay weak so the wolves can get you. She says, Toughen up, this is reality we are living in.
It is not until you become a mother that your judgment slowly turns to compassion and understanding.
