Good Mother quotes by Rick Moranis
#1. When I was a little kid, it was not uncommon for a cousin or an uncle, before they would even say 'Hello,' to gush, 'You know, your mother's brisket is just incredible; it's so good.' That was an inspiration for creating a love song in that well-worn terrain of the relationship between a Jewish boy and his mother. #Quote by Rick Moranis
Good Mother quotes by Ann Romney
#2. I think we identify ourselves by labels or things that we are able to do: I am this. I am a good cook. I am a good mother. I am a good this. I am a good doctor. I am a good lawyer. When you can't do those things anymore, you wonder where your identity is. #Quote by Ann Romney
Good Mother quotes by Joanne Woodward
#3. I was not a very good mother. I was always running out to do a movie or something. If I had to do it over, I would either have a career or children. I wouldn't do both unless I could work in my home. I spent 20 years feeling guilty, which is not a very nice emotion. #Quote by Joanne Woodward
Good Mother quotes by Lou Doillon
#4. I always have lipstick, and use the same lipstick for my cheeks as blush, so that it looks very natural. It's a good trick I learned from my mother. I like NYX or MAC because they have a lot of pigment and they're matte. #Quote by Lou Doillon
Good Mother quotes by Betty Smith
#5. I will not speak falsely and say to you: 'Do not grieve for me when I go.' I have loved my children and tried to be a good mother and it is right that my children grieve for me. But let your grief be gentle and brief. And let resignation creep into it. Know that I shall be happy. I shall see face to face the great saints I have loved all my life. #Quote by Betty Smith
Good Mother quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#6. good mother will make a point of having sex with several different men, especially when she is pregnant, so that her child will enjoy the qualities (and paternal care) not merely of the best hunter, but also of the best storyteller, the strongest warrior and the most considerate lover. If this sounds silly, bear in mind that before the development of modern embryological studies, people had no solid evidence that babies are always sired by a single father rather than by many. #Quote by Yuval Noah Harari
Good Mother quotes by Sharon Salzberg
#7. The man felt that she had not been a very good mother and was not a good person. At one point, Nisargadatta advised him to love his mother. The man replied, "She wouldn't let me." Nisargadatta responded, "She couldn't stop you." No external condition can prevent love; no one and no thing can stop it. The awakening of love is not bound up in things being a certain way. Metta, like the true nature of the mind, is not dependent; it is not conditioned. #Quote by Sharon Salzberg
Good Mother quotes by Carol Burnett
#8. On the good days, my mother would haul out the ukulele and we'd sit around the kitchen table - it was a cardboard table with a linoleum top - and sing. #Quote by Carol Burnett
Good Mother quotes by Joel Kinnaman
#9. We're all a big hippie family so I got five sisters and a bunch of different mothers. Not really, but my sisters' mothers are all good friends with my mother. We're a big family, 25 people. #Quote by Joel Kinnaman
Good Mother quotes by Chandra Wilson
#10. I wanted a good relationship with my mother, and I realized I had a choice: Either I could spend all my time angry that she didn't give me the hugs I thought I needed, or I could understand that she hugs differently. It's not a spread-open-the-arms, 'come here' hug. She hugs by sheltering me from her worries. #Quote by Chandra Wilson
Good Mother quotes by Rosie O'Donnell
#11. I know I'm a really good mother. I know it. I'm a really good mother. #Quote by Rosie O'Donnell
Good Mother quotes by Goldie Hawn
#12. Family has always been the most important thing in my life. The only real goal that I ever had was to be a good mother. #Quote by Goldie Hawn
Good Mother quotes by Lyz Lenz
#13. I want to squeeze myself into this role assigned to me - doting wife, good mother, worshipper of the male voice, the male god, the muscular Jesus, that requires I only work in the children's ministry, or go to women's Bible studies.

And what does that matter anyway? I don't want to be a pastor, do I? Why can't I just fit in? Why can't I just make it work? And I had for many years. My whole life. I know the moves and the language. I know how to brush my hair, wear my earrings, which books to read, and when to stay silent. I've spent my whole life doing it, believing that this was the cost of my life. The sacrifice of faith was to constantly feel the blisters of this ill-fitting religion. So why now? #Quote by Lyz Lenz
Good Mother quotes by Kate Bush
#14. I am just trying to be a good, protective mother. I want to give Bertie as normal a childhood as possible while preserving his privacy. #Quote by Kate Bush
Good Mother quotes by Purba Chakraborty
#15. A woman desires to be a man's last romance, her baby's first love and a person who can live with dignity all her life. As a girl matures to be a woman, her fairy tale imagination gets superseded by her struggle to be a good wife, a good mother and most importantly, a woman of virtue. As victor or vanquished, a woman keeps fighting the sequence of odds and evens throughout her life. Since nature had made women strong, society has very wisely done the reverse to maintain the balance. #Quote by Purba Chakraborty
Good Mother quotes by Adriana Trigiani
#16. Isn't this the truth of any good mother? That in all of our lives. We worry only about those we brought into this world, regardless of whether they loved us back or treated us fairly or understood our shortcomings. #Quote by Adriana Trigiani
Good Mother quotes by Ralph Robert Moore
#17. I loved all the Hardy Boy books. Once I collected my paperboy money each Friday I'd walk into town, make the rounds of all the local thrift shops (where you could buy a used hardback for a quarter.) I'd always get excited swinging open the front cover of a newly discovered book in the series. Let's solve a mystery! And investigate the long-abandoned water tower north of town. They were a lot of fun. And science fiction, although these were paperbacks. I stopped going to church when I was about ten. I'd get dressed and go out the front door telling my mom I was going to church, but I'd have a science fiction paperback jammed in the back pocket of my trousers. Once I got near the church (St. Mary's on Greenwich Avenue), I'd veer down a side street, pull out my book, and stumble along the sidewalks for an hour, visiting another planet, sometimes another galaxy. My mother eventually found out about my deception - a friend told her she had spotted me walking, reading, when I was supposed to be at mass. I explained to my mother I didn't want to attend church anymore, and she accepted that. If it made her sad, she never showed me. She was actually an incredibly good mother, which I realize more and more as I age. #Quote by Ralph Robert Moore
Good Mother quotes by Rachael Taylor
#18. I eat excellent bread, clean meat, good crisp veggies, organic fruits and nice wine and cheese. It is one of the things I am truly grateful for. I'm not kidding. You can't ask a single mother of three working two jobs for minimum wage to eat that way. I am lucky. #Quote by Rachael Taylor
Good Mother quotes by Tori Amos
#19. If you are a nurturing mother, and a good one, you can go to play groups, sit on the floor and play all the games, and have tea with the other mothers, but wouldn't you like to think that's not all there is? That you haven't hung up your high heels without knowing how to walk in them? #Quote by Tori Amos
Good Mother quotes by Bill O'Reilly
#20. My mother's not a political person. She just doesn't want me to be mean ... sometimes I have to be mean. It's like a parent or a teacher. Sometimes for the good of everybody you have to be a little bit strong, a little bit confrontational. #Quote by Bill O'Reilly
Good Mother quotes by Wynonna Judd
#21. I am proud that I am a good mother to my children, a good daughter to my mother, a good sister to my sis (Ashley Judd) and a good wife to my new husband. #Quote by Wynonna Judd
Good Mother quotes by Michelle Obama
#22. I think my mother taught me what not to do. She put us first, always, sometimes to the detriment of herself. She encouraged me not to do that. She'd say being a good mother isn't all about sacrificing; it's really investing and putting yourself higher on your priority list. #Quote by Michelle Obama
Good Mother quotes by James Fox
#23. Childhood is so important. Without a loving one, you're vulnerable throughout your life. We're all the things our parents are - the good and the not so good. Thankfully, I have a wonderful wife who's a brilliant mother. #Quote by James Fox
Good Mother quotes by Debra Gilbert Rosenberg
#24. New mothers enter the world of parenting feeling much like Alice in Wonderland.
- Being a mother is one of the most rewarding jobs on earth and also one of the most challenging.
- Motherhood is a process. Learn to love the process.
- There is a tremendous amount of learning that takes place in the first year of your baby's life; the baby learns a lot, too.
- It is sometimes difficult to reconcile the fantasy of what you thuoght motherhood would be like, and what you thought you would be like as a mother, with reality.
- Take care of yourself. If Mommy isn't happy, no one else in the family is happy either.
- New mother generally need to lower their expectations.
- A good mother learns to love her child as he is and adjusts her mothering to suit her child. #Quote by Debra Gilbert Rosenberg
Good Mother quotes by Lorraine Bracco
#25. I thought I was going to be a lot more freaked out by being naked onstage. I think on film I would have been more freaked out, because film is less forgiving. But onstage it's lit so beautifully. It would make my mother look good. #Quote by Lorraine Bracco
Good Mother quotes by Anne Tyler
#26. She had tried her best to be a good mother---which to her meant a predictable mother. She had promised herself that her children would never have to worry what sort of mood she was in; they would never peek into her bedroom in the morning to see how their day was going to go. She was the only woman she knew whose prime objective was to be taken for granted. #Quote by Anne Tyler
Good Mother quotes by Randy Henderson
#27. Gipetto decided he wanted the company of a young mundy maiden in his village. But he'd been lying to her about many thyings to hide the fact that he wan an arcana, and she'd begun to distrust him. So he made her a simple puppet out of wood that could talk, and if made to tell a lie, it's bulbous nose would grow long. He took the puppet to her, demonstrated its use, and had her ask the puppet if Gipetto loved her and if he would care for her always. These were not lies, not that a wooden puppet could tell, and Gipetto was wealth from selling his inventions, so they were married with her family's eager encouragement. But on those nights when Gipetto was away traveling and selling his wares, the neighbors swear they would hear the young woman telling the puppet to lie, and then tell the truth, over and over and over again. Because, you see, sometimes a girl wants the truth and sometimes she doesn't, as long as it makes her feel good." Mother laughed and patted my head, or at least she made the motions. "Someday, you'll understand, Finn. #Quote by Randy Henderson
Good Mother quotes by Blanche Wiesen Cook
#28. A lot of people say that Eleanor Roosevelt wasn't a good mother. And there are two pieces to that story. One is, when they were very young, she was not a good mother. She was an unhappy mother. She was an unhappy wife. She had never known what it was to be a good mother. She didn't have a good mother of her own. And so there's a kind of parenting that doesn't happen. #Quote by Blanche Wiesen Cook
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Warren
#29. My mother had taught me about the importance of finding a 'good provider,' so when my boyfriend proposed, I said 'yes' in a heartbeat. I was still just a kid, and I didn't know what was coming in life. #Quote by Elizabeth Warren
Good Mother quotes by Lisa Genova
#30. The majority of women in Welmont with children Charlie's age never miss a soccer game and don't earn special good mother status for being there. This is simply what good mothers do. These same mothers herald it an exceptional event if any of the dads leave the office early to catch a game. The fathers cheering on the sidelines are upheld as great dads. Fathers who miss the games are working. Mothers who miss the games, like me, are bad mothers. #Quote by Lisa Genova
Good Mother quotes by Claire Fontaine
#31. What was the payoff? It obviously kept me in my cozy zone of being in control, being a good mother, with a good daughter. Most of all, I realize, is that it allowed me to maintain the lie that she was healed, that Nick hadn't permanently damaged her, that I'd truly saved her. Because if I did, if there was no lasting residue of him, it meant that the denial that kept me in the marriage long enough for him to hurt her didn't help create the situation she's in now.
The person who I worked hardest to keep safe seems to have been me. #Quote by Claire Fontaine
Good Mother quotes by Marya Mannes
#32. Nobody objects to a woman being a good writer or sculptor or geneticist if at the same time she manages to be a good wife, a good mother, good-looking, good-tempered, well-dressed, well-groomed, and unaggressive. #Quote by Marya Mannes
Good Mother quotes by Nick Nolte
#33. I am a good sewer. My mother taught me how to sew. #Quote by Nick Nolte
Good Mother quotes by Rachel Cusk
#34. The 'good' mother, with her fixed smile, her rigidity, her goody-goody outlook, her obsession with unnecessary hygiene, is in fact a fool. It is the 'bad' mother, unafraid of a joke and a glass of wine, richly self-expressive, scornful of suburban values, who is, in reality, good. #Quote by Rachel Cusk
Good Mother quotes by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
#35. I have somewhere read of a wise bishop who in a visit to his diocese found an old woman whose only prayer consisted in the single interjection "Oh!-
"Good mother" said he to her, "continue to pray in this manner; your prayer is better than ours." This better prayer is mine also. #Quote by Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Good Mother quotes by Nayomi Munaweera
#36. Then too, motherhood is broken because in this place, to be a good mother is to give yourself completely. It is to erase yourself. This is what I refused to do. #Quote by Nayomi Munaweera
Good Mother quotes by Julianna Baggott
#37. Our stories are what we have," Our Good Mother says. "Our stories preserve us. we give them to one another. Our stories have value. Do you understand? #Quote by Julianna Baggott
Good Mother quotes by Halle Berry
#38. When I was a kid, my mother told me that if you could not be a good loser, then there's no way you could be a good winner. #Quote by Halle Berry
Good Mother quotes by Prince William
#39. No one is going to try to fill my mother's shoes, what she did was fantastic. It's about making your own future and your own destiny and Kate will do a very good job of that. #Quote by Prince William
Good Mother quotes by Julie Christie
#40. I don't think I would have been a good mother. Being a parent brings immense responsibility. It's a Herculean task. It would be almost too much for me. #Quote by Julie Christie
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Debold
#41. Few stories are written about what happens to the princess after the wedding. Reading between the lines of other stories, we can sketch out her "happily ever after": The princess gets pregnant and hopes for sons. As long as she is faithful and bears sons, she is considered to be a good wife. We don't hear whether or not she's a good mother, unless something goes wrong with her children ... All of history has been written about the subsequent adventures in the chapters of his life. #Quote by Elizabeth Debold
Good Mother quotes by James Cook
#42. It's nearly impossible for a criminal to come from a good mother. #Quote by James Cook
Good Mother quotes by George Herbert Palmer
#43. One good mother is worth a hundred schoolmasters. #Quote by George Herbert Palmer
Good Mother quotes by Peter Scolari
#44. My mother sent me lithograph years ago at the height of my television success. It said, 'When your cup runneth over, watcheth out.' I never got over it. There's something so cosmic to be inferred in that. Not necessarily anything bad, and not necessarily anything good. #Quote by Peter Scolari
Good Mother quotes by Cathy Hughes
#45. I'm a huge advocate of prayer. I've been praying since I was fifteen years old and the doctor told me I was going to be a mother and I was like "what?" I started praying that day that God would help me do what I needed to do to be a good mother and to raise this baby boy that I was going to be blessed with. I haven't stopped praying in years. #Quote by Cathy Hughes
Good Mother quotes by Kristi Yamaguchi
#46. Now, I am thrilled to be a wife and mother, and I hope to be as good of a mother as my own mother, Carole. #Quote by Kristi Yamaguchi
Good Mother quotes by Grace Slick
#47. My deal is that I pay more attention to whatever job I have than the relationships I have. Now, if I had considered my job to be a wife and mother, then I would have been pretty good at it. But I didn't consider it a job. I thought it was like brushing your teeth - it's not fun, it's just something you do to keep your teeth from falling out. #Quote by Grace Slick
Good Mother quotes by Anne Rice
#48. As the Roman Empire came to its close, all the old gods of the pagan world were seen as demons by the Christians who rose. It was useless to tell them as the centuries passed that their Christ was but another God of the Wood, dying and rising, as Dionysus or Osiris had done before him, and that the Virgin Mary was in fact the Good Mother again enshrined. Theirs was a new age of belief and conviction, and in it we became devils, detached from what they believed, as old knowledge was forgotten or misunderstood. #Quote by Anne Rice
Good Mother quotes by Dorothy Hamill
#49. I always had the sense that nothing was never good enough - striving for perfection. My mother and I had a sort of typical mother-daughter relationship. #Quote by Dorothy Hamill

Good Mother quotes by Amnat Ruenroeng
#51. Maybe with boxing and good focus, I can fix myself and make my mother proud. #Quote by Amnat Ruenroeng
Good Mother quotes by Alice Miller
#52. The attempt to be an ideal parent, that is, to behave correctly toward the child, to raise her correctly, not to give to little ortoo much, is in essence an attempt to be the ideal child
well behaved and dutiful
of one's own parents. But as a result of these efforts the needs of the child go unnoticed. I cannot listen to my child with empathy if I am inwardly preoccupied with being a good mother; I cannot be open to what she is telling me. #Quote by Alice Miller
Good Mother quotes by Carmen Maria Machado
#53. I think she adored this version of me, whose difficulties were, for all intents and purposes, childlike. She was a good mother for young children. #Quote by Carmen Maria Machado
Good Mother quotes by Mother Teresa
#54. I am not sure exactly what heaven will be like, but I know that when we die and it comes time for God to judge us, he will not ask, 'How many good things have you done in your life?' rather he will ask, 'How much love did you put into what you did? #Quote by Mother Teresa
Good Mother quotes by John C. Reilly
#55. I was more like a middle child. My youngest brother was the baby, so he got all the attention that the baby gets. And my older brothers were getting into so much trouble that I was left in the middle, doing plays. I was up to no good, but my mother didn't know it! #Quote by John C. Reilly
Good Mother quotes by Taylor Jenkins Reid
#56. You don't have to make yourself OK for a good mother; a good mother makes herself OK for you. #Quote by Taylor Jenkins Reid
Good Mother quotes by Dick Gregory
#57. When you have a good mother and no father, God kind of sits in. It's not enough, but it helps. #Quote by Dick Gregory
Good Mother quotes by Leonard Lauder
#58. The best advice I ever got came from my mother, Estee Lauder: She believed that if you had something good to say, you should put it in writing. But if you had something bad to say, you should tell the person to his or her face. #Quote by Leonard Lauder
Good Mother quotes by Kevin D. Williamson
#59. Of all the stupid and destructive products of 1960s-style liberation politics, the effective abolition of marriage (and hence of family, properly understood) will, in the end, turn out to be the worst. And spare me your banal self-justifications: "I divorced my child's mother, but I'm a good father!" "I was never married to my child's father, but I'm a good mother." I'm sure you think you are.

You aren't.

Statistically speaking, your domestic situation is about as healthy for your children as would be your picking up a drug habit. (Yes, yes, I'm sure that you are the special-snowflake exception to the rule. One of these days, a three-legged horse might win the Kentucky Derby, too.) The numbers are the numbers.

Strange thing: Wildly different philosophical and religious orientations all point to the same central fact of human life. In Genesis, it's "male and female he created them." In Plato, we spend our lives seeking the lost half of ourselves from which we were separated by the gods. In good ol' Darwinian terms, the getting of healthy offspring is the very purpose of life itself. We parted ways with the chimps a few eons ago, and somewhere along the way we developed habits and institutions that helped us to connect our libidos with one of our most useful and uniquely human traits: the ability to engage in long-term planning, even beyond our own lives.

And then, around 1964, we said: "To Hell with it, let's just be chimps."
#Quote by Kevin D. Williamson
Good Mother quotes by Alan King
#60. My mother kept the house clean and we ate good. I didn't know we were poor until I started giving interviews. #Quote by Alan King
Good Mother quotes by Gene Simmons
#61. My mother had a horrific life. At fourteen, she was in the Nazi concentration camps. Her sense about life now is, every day above ground is a good day. #Quote by Gene Simmons
Good Mother quotes by Michael Chabon
#62. [My dad] didn't do much apart from the traditional winning of bread. He didn't take me to get my hair cut or my teeth cleaned; he didn't make the appointments. He didn't shop for my clothes. He didn't make my breakfast, lunch, or dinner. My mom did all of those things, and nobody ever told her when she did them that it made her a good mother. #Quote by Michael Chabon
Good Mother quotes by Amy Hatvany
#63. being a good mother does not mean being perfect every single moment. we screw up. we get mad, we drink too much, eat too much, yell too much. a good mother learns from her mistakes and does what she can to not let them happen over and over. #Quote by Amy Hatvany
Good Mother quotes by Liza Minnelli
#64. I don't sing as well as my mother. I'm a good actress. I'm not that good a singer. #Quote by Liza Minnelli
Good Mother quotes by William Shakespeare
#65. Seems," madam? Nay, it is; I know not "seems."
'Tis not alone my inky cloak, good mother,
Nor customary suits of solemn black,
Nor windy suspiration of forced breath,
No, nor the fruitful river in the eye,
Nor the dejected 'havior of the visage,
Together with all forms, moods, shapes of grief,
That can denote me truly: these indeed seem,
For they are actions that a man might play:
But I have that within which passeth show;
These but the trappings and the suits of woe. #Quote by William Shakespeare
Good Mother quotes by Elisabeth Badinter
#66. The message is clear: a good mother breast feeds. Significantly, this good mother shares a sociocultural profile with women in other developed countries: she is over thirty, is a high earning professional, does not smoke, takes prenatal classes, and benefits from a long maternity leave. #Quote by Elisabeth Badinter
Good Mother quotes by Georgia Holt
#67. Cybill Shepherd's mother - her name is Patty - is a good friend of mine. #Quote by Georgia Holt
Good Mother quotes by Paula Hawkins
#68. I lay there and I thought of what that teacher said, and of all the things I'd been: child, rebellious teenager, runaway, whore, lover, bad mother, bad wife. I'm not sure if I can remake myself as a good wife, but a good mother - that I have to try. #Quote by Paula Hawkins
Good Mother quotes by Jodi Picoult
#69. A dutiful mother is someone who follows every step her child makes ... And a good mother is someone whose child wants to follow her. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Good Mother quotes by Lionel Shriver
#70. Trying to be a good mother may be as distant from being a good mother as trying to have a good time is from truly having one. #Quote by Lionel Shriver
Good Mother quotes by Claire Denis
#71. Marguerite Duras was a very good friend of mine and an intellectual hero. She was also a sort of mother figure. Of course she was an influence. #Quote by Claire Denis
Good Mother quotes by Sarah Shahi
#72. You know, I never really paid attention to sports, which, coming from the mecca of football in Texas, is kind of odd. I played sports, but I was nerdy. Having a single mother, the pressure was on me to get good grades and a scholarship and go to college. #Quote by Sarah Shahi
Good Mother quotes by Katharine Butler Hathaway
#73. Everybody knows that a good mother gives her children a feeling of trust and stability. She is their earth. She is the one they can count on for the things that matter most of all. She is their food and their bed and the extra blanket when it grows cold in the night; she is their warmth and their health and their shelter; she is the one they want to be near when they cry. She is the only person in the whole world in a whole lifetime who can be these things to her children. There is no substitute for her. #Quote by Katharine Butler Hathaway
Good Mother quotes by Yuli Pritania
#74. The best sentence a man can say to a woman is "I want to meet your parents" or "You will be a good mother one day". #Quote by Yuli Pritania
Good Mother quotes by J.M. Barrie
#75. It is the nightly custom of every good mother after her children are asleep to rummage in their minds and put things straight for the next morning, repacking into their proper places the many articles that have wandered during the day. #Quote by J.M. Barrie
Good Mother quotes by William Watson Purkey
#76. A poignant paradox is that sometimes the very desire to be a good mother or father will lead the parent to mistake duty for love. #Quote by William Watson Purkey
Good Mother quotes by Wesley Snipes
#77. I've been trying to keep the private life private. Not being savvy or trained on how to do good interviews like a politician, I thought it was wiser to follow my mother's advice: If you have nothing good to say, don't say anything at all. #Quote by Wesley Snipes
Good Mother quotes by James Rebhorn
#78. I do mean this - I had the good fortune of being around a number of Alzheimer's patients in the last three years of my mother's life. She was in a care facility that was devoted to just people with memory-loss issues. I found those people engaging and generous in ways that I had not imagined. #Quote by James Rebhorn
Good Mother quotes by Kelly Clarkson
#79. I would not be a good mother. I mean, I love being an aunt to my niece and nephew. And I used to want to, like, adopt 10 kids - because I had friends who were adopted, and I thought that was the coolest thing, to be chosen. But again, my job is too selfish. #Quote by Kelly Clarkson
Good Mother quotes by Jada Pinkett Smith
#80. Love and honesty are the things that make a good wife and mother. #Quote by Jada Pinkett Smith
Good Mother quotes by Emily Mortimer
#81. I am a good mother and I feel proud about it. #Quote by Emily Mortimer
Good Mother quotes by Bess Streeter Aldrich
#82. She thought of her younger days, - the gleam which seemed always ahead, - of the vague allure which accomplishing something in the arts had always held for her. And now she was nearly fifty and she was not to know the fruition of any of those hopes.
"Oh Will, I am so disappointed," she said to that invisible comrade who was only spirit and memory. "I can only feel those things, - not do them."
Isn't motherhood, itself, an accomplishment?
She knew that she made her own answer, and yet it gave her a sense of satisfaction and peace. Will might said it. It sounded like him.
"But I've made so many mistakes ... Will ... even in that."
You are a good mother, Abbie-girl."
Yes, it gave her a sense of peace and comfort. #Quote by Bess Streeter Aldrich
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Vargas
#83. For now, for this year, I need to be a good mother. #Quote by Elizabeth Vargas
Good Mother quotes by Berthold Auerbach
#84. Our second mother, habit, is also a good mother. #Quote by Berthold Auerbach
Good Mother quotes by Kelly Corrigan
#85. I had thought a good mother would not elicit such comments, but now I see that a good mother is required to somehow absorb all this ugliness and find a way to fall back in love with her child the next day. #Quote by Kelly Corrigan
Good Mother quotes by Fredrik Backman
#86. You asked "Am I a good mother?," always the same, the same...
...answer that you were seeking, when you should have known that
You were the strength inside
You were all that I could become
You taught me the value of "sorry," but the only time you retreated was when you were taking aim
You taught me the humility of tears but never let me apologize for existing
You didn't dress me up in fragile garments, you gave me armor
You taught me that daughters don't have to have dreams-we can have goals. #Quote by Fredrik Backman
Good Mother quotes by Francesca Annis
#87. I like having a good time. It's probably my mother's Brazilian genes in me - party, party. #Quote by Francesca Annis
Good Mother quotes by Laura Benanti
#88. Of course I wanted an agent from the time I was like 5, but my mother was like, 'No, you're going to be normal, you're going to go to school, you're going to get good grades, you're going to play soccer, and if you do well, if you keep your grades up, you can do one community-theater show a year.' #Quote by Laura Benanti
Good Mother quotes by George Eliot
#89. The impulse to confession almost always requires the presence of a fresh ear and a fresh heart; and in our moments of spiritual need, the man to whom we have no tie but our common nature, seems nearer to us than mother, brother, or friend. Our daily familiar life is but a hiding of ourselves from each other behind a screen of trivial words and deeds, and those who sit with us at the same hearth, are often the farthest off from the deep human soul within us, full of unspoken evil and unacted good. #Quote by George Eliot
Good Mother quotes by Ouida
#90. It is hard work to be good when you are very little and very hungry, and have many sticks to beat you, and no mother's lips to kiss you. #Quote by Ouida
Good Mother quotes by Robert C. Merton

Good Mother quotes by Sheena Easton
#94. I'm terrible at relationships. I consider myself to be smart and a good mother but it's taken me this long to realise you don't have to marry a guy after three days or dump him. #Quote by Sheena Easton
Good Mother quotes by J. Ogden Armour
#95. The young man who wants to marry happily should pick out a good mother and marry one of her daughters - any one will do. #Quote by J. Ogden Armour
Good Mother quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#96. If a good mother is one who loves her child more than anyone else in the world, I am not a good mother. I am in fact a bad mother. I love my husband more than I love my children. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Good Mother quotes by Lenny Kravitz
#97. My mother gave lots of good advice and had a lot to say. As you get older, you realize everything she said was true. #Quote by Lenny Kravitz

Good Mother quotes by Erin Kelly
#99. A good mother loves fiercely but ultimately brings up her children to thrive without her. They must be the most important thing in her life, but if she is the most important thing in theirs, she has failed. #Quote by Erin Kelly
Good Mother quotes by Margaret Carlson
#100. I think of Oprah as a Mother Joseph wannabe, a daytime oracle rewarding the good and punishing the bad. #Quote by Margaret Carlson
Good Mother quotes by Ayelet Waldman
#101. A good mother remembers to serve fruit at breakfast, is always cheerful and never yells, manages not to project her own neuroses and inadequacies onto her children, is an active and beloved community volunteer. She remembers to make play dates, her children's clothes fit, she does art projects with them and enjoys all their games. #Quote by Ayelet Waldman
Good Mother quotes by Ann Oakley
#102. Being a good mother does not call for the same qualities as being a good housewife; a dedication to keeping children clean and tidy may override an interest in their separate development as individuals. #Quote by Ann Oakley
Good Mother quotes by Etta James
#103. My mother always wanted me to be glamorous. When I thought about that, it really fired me up, and once I lost all those pounds, I started to feel really good about myself. #Quote by Etta James
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey
#104. Sometimes being a good mother gets in the way of being a good person. #Quote by Elizabeth Forsythe Hailey
Good Mother quotes by Caleb Carr
#105. I have to be very careful, however, because I have no intention of providing an excuse for this behavior. It's an attempt to explain how so many women come from backgrounds where the pressure to be a good mother is so severe that if they can't do it, something really snaps. #Quote by Caleb Carr
Good Mother quotes by David Cassidy
#106. My mother gave up a good part of her career to look after me. #Quote by David Cassidy
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Gilbert
#107. I consider a good dinner party at our house to be where people drink and eat more than they're meant to. My husband is a really fantastic cook. His mother is Italian and if you walk into our house, we assume you're starving. #Quote by Elizabeth Gilbert

Good Mother quotes by Pamela Todd
#111. It was this little troublemaker named Ralph Waldo Duffy. Ralph Waldo is the one who really ruined the pageant. He picked up the baby Jesus by the feet, and your mother stood up in front of God and everybody and yelled, 'Joseph, put Jesus down before I smack you.' Even then she had the makings of a good mother. #Quote by Pamela Todd
Good Mother quotes by Sanford I. Weill
#112. My mother really didn't know a heck of a lot about business. She was a very good mother, that made sure we ate right and we had our cod liver oil, but didn't know a heck of a lot about what I did. #Quote by Sanford I. Weill
Good Mother quotes by Lionel Blue
#113. My mother enjoyed old age, and because of her I've begun to enjoy parts of it too. So far I've had it good and am crumbling nicely. #Quote by Lionel Blue
Good Mother quotes by Kristin Hannah
#114. A better mother would shape that anger into loss and then, at least, into the kind of memory of love one can sustain, but Vianne was too empty to be a good mother right now. She could think of no words that weren't a lie or useless. #Quote by Kristin Hannah
Good Mother quotes by Werenfried Von Straaten
#115. A good mother does not live only for her children. She always has some bond with other mothers, no matter what class, nationality or race they may be. All mothers have the same joys, the same sorrows, the same anxieties. All mothers think first of their child and of children. #Quote by Werenfried Von Straaten
Good Mother quotes by Mary Wollstonecraft
#116. To be a good mother, a woman must have sense, and that independence of mind which few women possess who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands. Meek wives are, in general, foolish mothers; wanting their children to love them best, and take their part, in secret, against the father, who is held up as a scarecrow. #Quote by Mary Wollstonecraft
Good Mother quotes by George Herbert
#117. The good mother sayes not, Will you? but gives. #Quote by George Herbert
Good Mother quotes by Robyn Davidson

Good Mother quotes by Natascha McElhone
#120. My grandparents never understood why my mother Noreen chose such exotic names for her children: Damon and me. My granny insisted on calling my brother Dermot - a good Irish name - until she died; I was just known as 'wee one.' #Quote by Natascha McElhone
Good Mother quotes by Vivienne Westwood
#121. I always tried to do things by example, even though I was not a very good mother regarding routines and family life. #Quote by Vivienne Westwood
Good Mother quotes by Francis Maude
#122. We should be the natural home for young mothers. But we're not. Because too often we sound like people who think the only good mother is a married mother. #Quote by Francis Maude
Good Mother quotes by Sunidhi Chauhan
#123. My current role model is Beyonce. She is such a strong woman. She can do everything. She has kept herself together and has balanced her life perfectly. She is a great singer, great dancer and a great looker and is now a good mother and wife. #Quote by Sunidhi Chauhan
Good Mother quotes by Sanford I. Weill
#124. And when we used to play and fight in the streets in Brooklyn and I would get hurt or something, my mother would always come out and save me. So that sort of postponed the inevitable about getting a good beating, without having somebody to come and save you. #Quote by Sanford I. Weill
Good Mother quotes by Simon Sinek
#125. Some people are born good-looking. Some have the gift of gab. And some are lucky enough to be born smarter than the rest of us. Whether we like it or not, Mother Nature does not dole these characteristics out evenly. #Quote by Simon Sinek
Good Mother quotes by Lance Conrad
#126. There are few things more powerful than a name. A single phrase that somehow becomes a symbol for an entire existence. #Quote by Lance Conrad
Good Mother quotes by Jodi Picoult
#127. Being a good mother, it seemed to me, meant you ran the risk of losing your child. #Quote by Jodi Picoult
Good Mother quotes by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
#128. You can be a good daughter or you can be a good mother, but you can't be both. It is your decision and it is yours only. #Quote by Efrat Cybulkiewicz
Good Mother quotes by Charlotte M. Mason
#129. Authority is just and faithful in all matters of promise-keeping; it is also considerate, and that is why a good mother is the best home-ruler. #Quote by Charlotte M. Mason
Good Mother quotes by Michael Ramirez
#130. I'm a political analyst. I'm a political wonk. I read everything I can get my hands on as a contributor to the 'Weekly Standard.' Of course I read that. I read the 'National Review' on the right. I read 'Mother Jones' on the left. If I want a good laugh, I'll watch MSNBC or read 'The Nation.' #Quote by Michael Ramirez
Good Mother quotes by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
#131. Everyone has been overjoyed with the birth of their first son, bringing celebratory sweets, new clothes for the baby, fennel tea to bolster her milk supply. They have showered on her all the traditional gifts, as if this is her first baby, their first child. What about the other times I've carried a baby in my womb, given birth, held my child in my arms?
But no one acknowledges this, not even Jasu. Only Kavita has an aching cavity in her heart for what she's lost. She sees the pride in Jasu's eyes as he holds his son and forces herself to smile while saying a silent prayer for this child. She hopes she can give him the life he deserves. She prays she will be a good mother to her son, prays she has enough maternal love left in her heart for him, prays it didn't die along with her daughters. #Quote by Shilpi Somaya Gowda
Good Mother quotes by Francesca Lia Block
#132. Being a good mother is being a hero. Right? #Quote by Francesca Lia Block
Good Mother quotes by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
#133. The heart of a good mother is as big as the ocean; accommodating all kind of things and sweeping all unwanted things to its shores! #Quote by Ernest Agyemang Yeboah
Good Mother quotes by Jimmy Dean
#134. I think the kids in school that laughed at the clothes that we wore and the house that we lived in, and then my mother had to cut hair ... I think that was a good motivator. Every time they laughed at me, they just built a fire, and there was only one way to put it out - to try and show 'em I was as good as they were. #Quote by Jimmy Dean
Good Mother quotes by Jack Canfield
#135. If I hadn't spent many years trying to be as compassionate as Mother Teresa, as positive a thinker as W. Clement Stone, as prolific a writer as Stephen King, and as good a speaker as many of the legends I have studied, I would not be as successful as I am today. #Quote by Jack Canfield
Good Mother quotes by Richelle Mead
#136. I can't have it either. It affects the babies in utero."
"Nonsense," he said, tossing his long auburn hair over one shoulder. Life would be easier if he wasn't so damned good-looking. "Why, my mother drank wine every day, and I turned out just fine."
"I think you're proving my point for me," I said dryly #Quote by Richelle Mead
Good Mother quotes by Bernie Mac
#137. I was good at keeping my mother from crying. #Quote by Bernie Mac
Good Mother quotes by Mary Tyler Moore
#138. I still feel as if I weren't a good enough mother. I didn't break any rules. #Quote by Mary Tyler Moore
Good Mother quotes by Tracey Emin
#139. I'd make a good friend, not mother. I'm too selfish. I think a lot of mothers are selfish and they end up having children, but I don't want to put some small tiny person through that. #Quote by Tracey Emin
Good Mother quotes by Honore De Balzac
#140. It is easier for a woman to be a good wife than a good mother. A widow has two duties with contrary obligations: she is a mother and she must exercise paternal authority. Few woman are strong enough to understand and to play this role. #Quote by Honore De Balzac
Good Mother quotes by Maya Angelou
#141. I have a feeling that I make a very good friend, and I'm a good mother, and a good sister, and a good citizen. I am involved in life itself - all of it. And I have a lot of energy and a lot of nerve. #Quote by Maya Angelou
Good Mother quotes by Isobelle Carmody
#142. Once upon a time, if you wanted to talk about the notion of child abandonment, of a mother not being a good mother, that's built into the mother who sends the babes into the woods, and they use the bits of bread or stones to come home again. #Quote by Isobelle Carmody
Good Mother quotes by Jencarlos Canela
#143. I have a dad-ager. My dad is really good at the business end of things. But it's really a family affair. My mother handles all my social media stuff - Facebook, Twitter, e-mails, that kind of thing. #Quote by Jencarlos Canela
Good Mother quotes by Irene Hunt
#144. That old Mrs. Bishop was lacking in the qualities that make a good mother. And saying it that way makes her sound a good deal better than she really was. #Quote by Irene Hunt
Good Mother quotes by Elizabeth Lesser
#145. What mothers do - they act with love, at least good mothers do! They have a spirit of strong, fierce, protective energy - the way a mother would put her life on the line for her children - we need to put our life on the line for each other. #Quote by Elizabeth Lesser
Good Mother quotes by Susan J. Douglas
#146. Intensive mothering is the ultimate female Olympics: We are all in powerful competition with each other, in constant danger of being trumped by the mom down the street, or in the magazine we're reading. The competition isn't just over who's a good mother--it's over who's the best. We compete with each other; we compete with ourselves. The best mothers always put their kids' needs before their own, period. The best mothers are the main caregivers. For the best mothers, their kids are the center of the universe. The best mothers always smile. They always understand. They are never tired. They never lose their temper. They never say, "Go to the neighbor's house and play while Mommy has a beer." Their love for their children is boundless, unflagging, flawless, total. Mothers today cannot just respond to their kids' needs, they must predict them--and with the telepathic accuracy of Houdini. They must memorize verbatim the books of all the child-care experts and know which approaches are developmentally appropriate at different ages. They are supposed to treat their two-year-olds with "respect." If mothers screw up and fail to do this on any given day, they should apologize to their kids, because any misstep leads to permanent psychological and/or physical damage. Anyone who questions whether this is the best and the necessary way to raise kids is an insensitive, ignorant brute. This is just common sense, right? #Quote by Susan J. Douglas
Good Mother quotes by Madeline Kahn
#147. My mother was a Bohemian - in the good sense of the word. A searcher. And she investigated various religions. #Quote by Madeline Kahn
Good Mother quotes by Miya Yamanouchi
#148. As mothers, we need to embrace our sexuality in order to set an example for our daughters to value and celebrate the female body and its sexual capabilities #Quote by Miya Yamanouchi
Good Mother quotes by Stephanie Grace Whitson
#149. Walks the Fire is a good woman. She is white,but she has been among you for many years now.She was a good wife to Rides the Wind.She is a good mother to me.I remember your tales of how he hunted after she walked the fire to save Hears Not.When she was well, he held a banquet in her honor.You were all there to share his joy. #Quote by Stephanie Grace Whitson
Good Mother quotes by Alexa Vega

Good Mother quotes by Dorothy Moore
#152. I find myself getting so upset because I was never able to be a good mother for my daughter or a good grandmother for my granddaughter because I was always so sick. I only hope that I can live long enough to see my granddaughter graduate. #Quote by Dorothy Moore
Good Mother quotes by Janine Di Giovanni
#153. For the first five years of Luca's life, I desperately wanted to be a good mother and not to pass on this trauma and darkness that his father and I had experienced, but there's a danger of suffocating your kids, too. #Quote by Janine Di Giovanni
Good Mother quotes by Mary Blakely
#154. Today, only a fool would offer herself as the singular role model for the Good Mother. Most of us know not to tempt the fates. Themoment I felt sure I had everything under control would invariably be the moment right before the principal called to report that one of my sons had just driven somebody's motorcycle through the high school gymnasium. #Quote by Mary Blakely
Good Mother quotes by Raquel Welch
#155. I inherited good skin from my mother, and I stay away from soap, which dries it out. #Quote by Raquel Welch
Good Mother quotes by Ellen Barkin
#156. You've got a movie where the pro-choice family gives their daughter no choice. The pro-life family murders. What seems to be the good mother, the kind of hippie painter, sweet and cute mother has no love for her daughter really. #Quote by Ellen Barkin
Good Mother quotes by Vi Keeland
#157. Roman looked at me. "What about you? She keep you happy?"
"She's a good mother."
"So is my mother. But that doesn't mean I want to fuck her and spend the rest of my life hanging out with her."
"You have a unique way of looking at shit. #Quote by Vi Keeland

Good Mother quotes by Thora Hird
#159. Until I got married, when I used to go out, my mother said good bye to me as though I was emigrating. #Quote by Thora Hird
Good Mother quotes by Louisa May Alcott

Good Mother quotes by Nina Garcia
#162. My mother was a very big inspiration. She loved fashion. I loved art in school, and I was very good at drawing. I could sit at the table forever and just dream up collections and draw. #Quote by Nina Garcia
Good Mother quotes by Nick Roddy
#163. I don't think most people realise the practical problems associated with prostitution; childcare is a major issue, believe me. I wanted to be a good mother. I wanted more than anything to be a good mother. Sweet #Quote by Nick Roddy
Good Mother quotes by John McPhee
#164. Mother like son' is a saying so true, the world will judge largely of mother by you. #Quote by John McPhee
Good Mother quotes by Kurt Vonnegut
#165. I have graded my separate works from A to D. The grades I hand out to myself do not place me in literary history. I am comparing myself with myself. Thus can I give myself an A-plus for Cat's Cradle, while knowing that there was a writer named William Shakespeare. The report card is chronological, so you can plot my rise and fall on graph paper, if you like:
Player Piano B
The Sirens of Titan A
Mother Night A
Cat's Cradle A-plus
God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater A
Slaughterhouse-Five A-plus
Welcome to the Monkey House B-minus
Happy Birthday, Wanda June D
Breakfast of Champions C
Wampeters, Foma & Grandfalloons C
Slapstick D
Jailbird A
Palm Sunday C #Quote by Kurt Vonnegut
Good Mother quotes by Richard Dreyfuss
#166. It must be remembered that the Bush White House has a separate talent for character assassination that must not be confused with a talent for governance. #Quote by Richard Dreyfuss
Good Mother quotes by Julie Hebert
#167. Setting goals is good to do, to make your dreams come true for you. #Quote by Julie Hebert
Good Mother quotes by Rhonda Byrne

Good Mother quotes by Therese Of Lisieux
#169. Silence does good to the soul. #Quote by Therese Of Lisieux
Good Mother quotes by Beth Orton
#170. I love the water more than anything. I'm not very good at sunbathing - I get really bored. I love swimming and I love being like a fish and getting in the sea and just - I don't know, it feels right. #Quote by Beth Orton
Good Mother quotes by Donovan Bailey
#171. A team sport is not very good for me, because I can't take losing. #Quote by Donovan Bailey
Good Mother quotes by George Bernard Shaw
#172. The test of good education is seeing how it behaves in a fight. #Quote by George Bernard Shaw
Good Mother quotes by Jack LaLanne
#173. Another intruder that plagues our good health is sleeplessness. Insomnia is much like constipation in that stress or nervous tension can bring it on or aggravate it until there's almost no coping with it. That's why you find sleeping pills in so many medicine cabinets next to the laxatives. #Quote by Jack LaLanne
Good Mother quotes by Amanda Bynes
#174. I don't want to be Marilyn Monroe. In many ways, that's a good comparison. Because Marilyn Monroe was a sexpot, all that stuff that I have no interest in. For me, it's much easier to just try to make people laugh than to try to be the hottest thing in the world. #Quote by Amanda Bynes
Good Mother quotes by Rachel Zoe
#175. I wear things that kind of can look good for extended periods of time - fabrics that don't wrinkle, things that don't stain very easily. #Quote by Rachel Zoe
Good Mother quotes by Swami Vivekananda
#176. "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all good things will be added unto you." Follow God and you shall have whatever you desire. #Quote by Swami Vivekananda
Good Mother quotes by Maureen Johnson
#177. It was probably a good idea to have you possible future stepmother think you were a little nuts. It would keep her on her toes and dissuade her from trying to sit down and have touchy-feely talks. Not that she expected that from Julia. Julia looked like she might head-butt people in meetings. #Quote by Maureen Johnson
Good Mother quotes by Charles Bukowski
#178. I wasn't sleeping on the streets at night. Of course, there were a lot of good people sleeping in the streets. They weren't fools, they just didn't fit into the needed machinery of the moment. And those needs kept altering. #Quote by Charles Bukowski
Good Mother quotes by Pope Francis
#179. A Christian who withdraws into himself, hiding all that the Lord has given him, is not a Christian! I would ask the many young people present to be generous with their God-given talents for the good of others, the Church and our world. #Quote by Pope Francis
Good Mother quotes by Dan Brown
#180. Over the last fifty years," the tall man declared, "our sins against Mother Nature have grown exponentially." He paused. "I fear for the soul of humankind. #Quote by Dan Brown
Good Mother quotes by Lily Koppel
#181. Royal Young's memoir is about a dreamer, set in the post- apocalyptic celebrity world of today, and Young, who grew up in New York - like Holden Caulfield if he wanted to be famous - is looking for adventure and action and becomes entangled in all sorts of romantic and sordid relationships. He points out the perplexing tragedy (and good fortune, I think) of what it means to be talented and rebellious, but not a celebrity. #Quote by Lily Koppel
Good Mother quotes by Mikhail Bulgakov
#182. A morphine addict has one piece of good fortune, which nobody can take away from him - the capacity to spend his life in total solitude. And solitude means important, significant ideas, it means contemplation, tranquillity, wisdom... #Quote by Mikhail Bulgakov
Good Mother quotes by Curt Siodmak
#183. Every country we conquer feeds us. And these are just a few of the good things we'll have when this war is over. Slaves working for us everywhere while we sit back with a fork in our hands and a whip on our knees. #Quote by Curt Siodmak
Good Mother quotes by R.K. Lilley
#184. I don't know to this day if I screamed out loud, but deep down in my soul, in the place inside of me that was bursting to be a mother, that pined for it, that lived and breathed for the day that I could give birth to my own child, my own flesh and blood, that part of me screamed, "Noooo!"
It was quite possible that, somewhere deep down, I never stopped screaming it #Quote by R.K. Lilley
Good Mother quotes by Ashton Kutcher
#185. I don't believe that old cliche that good things come to those who wait. I think good things come to those who want something so bad they can't sit still. #Quote by Ashton Kutcher
Good Mother quotes by William Monahan
#186. I didn't have anything to do with selecting IFC. I don't have anything to do with distribution, or business, or marketing, but think it's a good choice by Graham, and perfect for London Boulevard. It gets the picture straight into a dialog with the public, and it doesn't set the sights too high. They're very hip at IFC, and they get the film. The cineplex hasn't done film any favors as an art form. #Quote by William Monahan
Good Mother quotes by Les Dawson
#187. Mind you, I've always been musical ... Mother used to sit me on her knee and I'd whisper, 'Mummy, Mummy, sing me a lullaby do,' and she'd say: 'Certainly my angel, my wee bundle of happiness, hold my beer while I fetch me banjo.' #Quote by Les Dawson
Good Mother quotes by Brigham Young
#188. Prayer is good, but when baked potatoes and milk are needed, prayer will not supply their place. #Quote by Brigham Young
Good Mother quotes by John Calvin
#189. It must be plain also that we should not anxiously strive for riches and honors by relying on our own diligence or cleverness or by depending on the favor of men or by trusting in the notion of good luck, but that we should always expect the Lord to direct us to the lot he has provided for us. #Quote by John Calvin
Good Mother quotes by Marilynne Robinson
#190. And I gave you some of those chocolate cupcakes with the squiggle of white frosting across the top. I buy those for your mother because she loved them and won't buy them for herself. #Quote by Marilynne Robinson

#191. Conscience is what makes a boy tell his mother before his sister does. #Quote by Evan Esar

#193. Knight burst out laughing

Good Mother quotes by Mel Gibson
#194. An acid is like a woman: a good one will eat through your pants. #Quote by Mel Gibson
Good Mother quotes by John Waters
#195. The first real thing was Divine as Jackie Kennedy [in Eat Your Makeup]. His mother found the bloody Jackie Kennedy outfit in the boot of his car and said, 'What is this?" and Divine said, "I am Jackie Kennedy!" His mother just changed the subject; she didn't know what to say. #Quote by John Waters
Good Mother quotes by Terry Pratchett
#196. - "Surely you have considered terrorist activity?"
There was another pause. Then the spokesman said, in the quiet tones of someone who has had enough and who is going to quit after this and raise chickens somewhere, "Yes, I suppose we must. All we need to do is find some terrorists who are capable of taking an entire nuclear reactor out of its can while it's running and without anyone noticing. It weighs about a thousand tons and is forty feet high. So they'll be quite strong terrorists. Perhaps you'd like to ring them up, sir, and ask them questions in that supercilious, accusatory way of yours."
The BBC interviews a nuclear spokesperson (Terry Pratchett & Neil Gaiman, Good Omens) #Quote by Terry Pratchett
Good Mother quotes by T.J. Klune
#197. It's not destiny, Ox. You're not bound by this. Not yet. There's a choice. There is always a choice. My wolf chose you. I chose you. And if you don't choose me, then that's your choice and I will walk out of here knowing you got to choose your own path. But I swear to god, if you choose me, I will make sure that you know the weight of your worth every day for the rest of our lives because that's what this is. I am going to be a fucking Alpha one day, and there is no one I'd rather have by my side than you. It's you, Ox. For me, it's always been you." So I said, "Okay, Joe." I looked up at him. His wolf was close to the surface. And he said, "Okay?" I said, "Okay. Okay. I don't know if I see the things you do." "I know." "And I don't know if I'll be good enough." "I know you will," he said, eyes flashing orange. "But I promised you. I said it will always be you and me." His face stuttered a bit, and he said, "You did. You promised me. You promised."

Good Mother quotes by Christine Feehan
#198. Life is to be lived. It doesn't really matter the how and why of things. It matters how you choose to live. I taught you to live life large. Tha's all, Wyatt. Love when you can. Laugh. Sing. And take care of your family and friends and then your community. It's not always easy, but it's good and at the end of it all, you'll be satisfied. #Quote by Christine Feehan

Good Mother quotes by Francis Beauchesne Thornton
#201. Poetry was not meant to be a workhorse; it was not designed to paint pretty moral pictures of life; it was not brought into being to confuse us with cryptograms, or high platitudes, or pompous pretensions. The poet was meant to be a seer; he was designed to run toward the intensities and magnificences of life, to bathe his hands in reality. But where the mystic ran toward Reality in silence and lost himself in it, the poet as soon as he had experienced it, ran back toward humanity crying the good news and putting it into shimmering webs of words. #Quote by Francis Beauchesne Thornton
