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. Jessica Lange.

The mother-child relationship is paradoxical and, in a sense, tragic. It requires the most intense love on the mother’s side, yet this very love must help the child grow away from the mother, and to become fully independent. Erich Fromm.

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. Pablo Picasso

I am sure that if the mothers of various nations could meet, there would be no more wars. E. M. Forster.

Being a mother is hard and it wasn’t a subject I ever studied. Ruby Wax.

Motherhood has a very humanizing effect. Everything gets reduced to essentials. Meryl Streep.

The fastest way to break the cycle of perfectionism and become a fearless mother is to give up the idea of doing it perfectly – indeed to embrace uncertainty and imperfection. Arianna Huffington.
