When I was younger I used to write poems for my mom on Mother’s Day. They weren’t elaborate Walt Whitman-type poems at all, but it was my little way of showing that I cared. Unfortunately, this little tradition has fallen by the wayside as I’ve gotten older. I blame it on the uncreative mind of adulthood. In place of the poem, though, I still try to add a little extra to my Mother’s Day card by adding a quote or two from some of the great minds of the past or present. Below I share 10 amazing quotes that pay tribute to all of those amazing mom’s out there. Happy Mother’s Day!

“The moment a child is born, the mother is also born.  She never existed before.  The woman existed, but the mother, never.  A mother is something absolutely new.” ~Rajneesh

“My mom is a neverending song in my heart of comfort, happiness, and being.  I may sometimes forget the words but I always remember the tune.” ~Graycie Harmon

“It kills you to see them grow up.  But I guess it would kill you quicker if they didn’t.” ~Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams

“Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children.”

In ‘Unlimited Power’ by Anthony Robbins, he speaks to the reader about modeling those people who have the characteristics that you would like to adapt for yourself. In my mind, reading quotes gives me the ability to connect with leaders of years past or present, and allows me to adopt a mindset that I know will lead to better thoughts and actions for my life.

Without further delay, let’s get to the quotes from some of the greatest leaders ever born in the month of April.

“I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”
