Happy Mother’s Day! from Riverside Community Hospital


In celebration of Mother’s Day, we’ve put together a list of quotes honoring mothers and motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society:

  • Mother – that was the bank where we deposited all our hurts and worries. –T. DeWitt Talmage
  • There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it. –Chinese Proverb
  • When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. –Sophia Loren, Women and Beauty
  • A mother understands what a child does not say. –Jewish Proverb
  • A mother is the truest friend we have, when trials, heavy and sudden, fall upon us; when adversity takes the place of prosperity; when friends who rejoice with us in our sunshine, desert us when troubles thicken around us, still will she cling to us, and endeavor by her kind precepts and counsels to dissipate the clouds of darkness, and cause peace to return to our hearts. –Washington Irving (1783-1859)
