"All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother." Abraham Lincoln Quotes 5-6-16 | Misselainious blogSince it’s Mother’s Day this weekend all these quotes will be inspired by that and the topic of nurturing.  Hey maybe you can steal one for that card you’re going to write to a mother or mother figure in your life. 😉

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” ~ Leo Buscaglia

“All that I am or ever hope to be, I owe to my angel mother.” ~ Abraham Lincoln

“What people aren’t craving is perfection, or shockingly high standards.  People aren’t longing to be impressed.  They are longing to feel like they’re home.” ~ Shauna Niequist

“The greatest heroes in life are those that never give up on someone.  They stick it out and make it work. They sacrifice things in their life, in order to help others grow.  They give up what they want because someone needs it more.  They work hard and overcome adversity.  They fail for a moment, but get back up on their feet to show others they don’t have to stay down.  They show their loved ones that love is not “proved” by conformity.  They teach others that having a voice is a sign of courage, and they will not stay silent to make people feel comfortable.  They are fearless and will do whatever it takes to bring about the greatness in the ones they love because doing so brings them peace.  Their name is—MOM.” ~ Shannon L. Alder

“Was it the act of giving birth that made you a mother?  Did you lose that label when you relinquished your child? If people were measured by their deeds, on the one hand, I had a woman who had chosen to give me up; on the other, I had a woman who’d sat up with me at night when I was sick as a child, who’d cried with me over boyfriends, who’d clapped fiercely at my law school graduation.  Which acts made you more of a mother?  Both, I realized.  Being a parent wasn’t just about bearing a child.  It was about bearing witness to its life.” ~ Jodi Picoult

“I looked on child rearing not only as a work of love & duty but as a profession that was fully as interesting & challenging as any honorable profession in the world and one that demanded the best that I could bring to it.” ~ Rose Kennedy

“How can it be a large career to tell other people’s children about the Rule of Three, and a small career to tell one’s own children about the universe?  How can it be broad to be the same thing to everyone, and narrow to be everything to someone?  No.  A woman’s function is laborious, but because it is gigantic, not because it is minute.  I will pity Mrs. Jones for the hugeness of her task; I will never pity her for its smallness.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

“It takes a little bit of mindfulness and a little bit of attention to others to be a good listener, which helps cultivate emotional nurturing and engagement.” ~ Deepak Chopra

“I love being nurturing and caring because I love to see other people happy.” ~ Jennifer Hudson

“The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.  It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows.  The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.” ~ Audrey Hepburn
