Success is never final, failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts.
A man can fail many times, but he isn’t a failure until he begins to blame somebody else.
Mistakes are the portals of discovery.
There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.
The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.
If I’ve learned anything as a mom with a daughter who’s three, I’ve learned that you cannot judge the way another person is raising their kid. Everybody is just doing the best they can. It’s hard to be a mom.
When you have a wonderful mother-in-law who takes sides with you in squabbles with her own daughter – that’s something.
How did you find the energy, Mom
To do all the things you did,
To be teacher, nurse and counselor
To me, when I was a kid.
How did you do it all, Mom,
Be a chauffeur, cook and friend,
Yet find time to be a playmate,
I just can’t comprehend.
I see now it was love, Mom
That made you come whenever I’d call,
Your inexhaustible love, Mom
And I thank you for it all.
-By Joanna Fuchs
To Be a Great Mother
A great mother loves without reason
Through winter, summer, spring, and fall
Her love is unalterable, despite the season.
A great mother knows when to talk
And just how to listen.
She knows when to walk away
And save the battle for another day.
Even when she’s angry
She never takes it out on others.
That’s why only a few women
Can indeed be called great mothers.
Only one woman can be the Best mother,
And Mom, That’s You.
A Daughter’s Gratitude
Nobody ever wanted me before.
I didn’t expect you to be different.
Then you said,
“I would like to be your mother.”
I couldn’t believe what I heard.
Someone wanted me.
Now I’ve had years to know you.
It only took me a second to love you.
By adopting me,
You showed me that someone believes in me
That somebody really cares.
And because of this,
You mean the world to me.
I love you, Mom.
Because of You
You’re the friend I most adore.
You taught me everything I know
You never abandoned me
when times got tough.
You held my trembling hands
when the waters were rough.
Mother, you’ve always been by my side.
Holding me up
When I wanted to hide.
Because of you,
I now walk with pride.
More than gems in my comb box shaped by the God of the Sea,
I prize you, my daughter
I gaze out over the fields of Tadaka
and see the cranes that cry there
without interval, without pause:
such is my longing for you.
Mom, you’ve always been the best
A better mom than all the rest.
I’m thankful for all the things you do
I’m glad my mom is extra special you!
On Mother’s Day, I want you to know
You’re the greatest mom, and I love you so.
There’s one more thing I want to say:
I wish you Happy Mother’s Day!
Nobody’s quite like you, Mom.
You’re special in every way.
You cheer me up, you fill my cup
With tenderness, come what may.
Nobody loves me like you, Mom.
No matter what I do,
Good or bad, happy or sad,
You support me; You always come through.
Nobody’s equal to you, Mom.
With you in my life, I’m blessed.
I love you so, and I want you to know
I think you’re the very best!
What “Mother” Means
“Mother” is such a simple word,
But to me there’s meaning seldom heard.
For everything I am today,
My mother’s love showed me the way.
I’ll love my mother all my days,
For enriching my life in so many ways.
She set me straight and then set me free,
And that’s what the word “mother” means to me.
Thanks for being a wonderful mother, Mom!
A daughter is like a treasure trove
Full of smiles, laughter and love
She is like an antique wooden chest
Filled with memories that are the best
Just like a colorful a box of sweets
A daughter is full of delights and treats
I feel blessed to have such a daughter
Here’s hoping I can be a worthy father
I love you
I’ve said it on Facebook
I’ve said it on Twitter
I’ve shown it on Instagram
I’ve let it out in the atmosphere
I’ve said it again and again
And I will say it once more
My daughter is the sweetest girl
That any parent ever bore
I love you
You are the daughter
Parents dream to get
Everyone out there
Is jealous of me I bet
You are the princess
Every mum and dad would love
You are our little angel
Sent from the heavens above
High as the sky
Deep as the sea
Is how much you are
Loved by the family
Wide as the desert
Long as the eucalyptus
Is how much you are
Loved by all of us
I am proud of many things in my life, but nothing beats being a mother.
A daughter may outgrow your lap, but she will never outgrow your heart.
She’s a reflection of me. So you know she’s awesome.
To my Daughter. Never forget that I love you. Life is filled with hard times and good times. Learn from everything you can. Be the woman I know you can be.
A daughter is God’s way of saying, “thought you could use a lifelong friend.”
You are amazing. Remember that.
Let me love you a little more before you’re not little anymore.
If I could give my daughter three things, it would be the confidence to always know her self worth, the strength to chase her dreams, and the ability to know how truly, deeply loved she is.
For all the things my hands have held, the best by far is you.
A daughter is one of the most beautiful gifts this world has to give.
And she loved a little girl very, very much – even more than she loved herself.
Chin up princess. Or the crown slips.
I constantly go between wanting you to be my baby forever, and being excited about all the amazing things you’ll do in this life.
To my daughter I will say, ‘See you beauty without a compliment or a mirror.’
Teach your daughter to worry less about fitting into glass slippers and more about shattering glass ceilings.
Someday when the pages of my life end, I know that you will be one of its most beautiful chapters.
Life is tough my darling, but so are you.
Without my kids tomorrow wouldn’t be worth the wait, and yesterday wouldn’t be worth remembering.
Mom (n): woman who loves you unconditionally.
Out of all the moms in the world, I’m SO glad you are mine.
A mom’s hug lasts long after she lets go.
To the world you are a mother, but to your family you are the world.
You’re the mom everyone wishes they had.
My mother… she is beautiful, softened at the edges and tempered with a spine of steel. I want to grow old and be like her.
My identity rests solely and firmly on this: I am my mother’s daughter.
Sooner or later we ALL quote our mother!
Good moms have sticky floors, messy kitchens, laundry piles, and happy kids.
MOM turned upside down spells WOW.
Moms make life beautiful.
Moms hold their children’s hands for a while, but their hearts forever.
The loveliest masterpiece of the heart of God is the heart of a mother.
“A mother understand what a child does not say.”
A mother’s heart is a special place where here children are always home.
Everything I am, you helped me to be
I got it from my mama.
A mother is like a flower. Each one is beautiful and unique.
If at first you don’t succeed, try doing it the way mom told you in the beginning.
Mother (n): a person who does the work of many. For free.
Mothers have no idea how they’ll do it, but every single day it still gets done.
MOM – a title just above QUEEN.
A mother is she who can take the place of all others, but whose place no one else can take.
The most precious jewels you’ll ever have around your neck are the arms of your children.
No matter how old she may be, sometimes a girl just needs her mom.
Call your mother. Tell her you love her. Remember, you’re the only person who knows what her heart sounds like from the inside.
My daughter is super amazing, and I’m the lucky one because I get to be her mom.
I told my mom she was invading my personal space and she said I cam out of her personal space.
The love between a mother and a daughter is forever.
There will be so many times you feel like you’ve failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child you are SUPER MOM.
You know you’re a mom when you… Go to the store for yourself, and come out with bags full of things for your kids.
When you are a mother, you are never alone in your thoughts.
Angels are often disguised as daughters.
Momster (n): what happens to mom after she counts to 3…
I hope you believe in yourself as much as I believe in you.
Maybe it’s just a daughter’s job to piss off her mother.
By the time a woman realises her mother was right, she has a daughter who thinks she’s wrong.
A son is a son till he takes him a wife, a daughter is a daughter all of her life.
The more a daughter knows the details of her mother’s life, the stronger the daughter.
First my mother, forever my friend.
A daughter is just a little girl who grows up to be your best friend.
Life doesn’t come with a manual. It comes with a mother.
A mother’s treasure is her daughter.
Mothers and daughters are closest, when daughters become mothers.
I am not a perfect mother and I will never be. You are not a perfect daughter and you will never be. But put us together and we will be the best mother and daughter we would ever be.
Good daughters make good mothers.
What the daughter does, the mother did.
You mean way too much for me to call you mother-in-law so I figured I would let you pick your favorite endearment. Do you prefer mom, friend, or bestie? Happy birthday to the woman who embodies all those things to me.
I know I don’t say it nearly enough, but thank you for all the times you’ve been there for me. Your support during my first few years of marriage have made my marriage stronger, and I appreciate it more than you can know.
Raisin cookies that look like chocolate chip cookies are the main reason why I have trust issues.
Tact is for people who aren’t clever enough to be sarcastic.
Yesterday I was clever, so I wanted to change the world. Today I am wise, so I am changing myself.
I never make stupid mistakes. Only very, very clever ones.
Speak when you are angry and you’ll make the best speech you’ll ever regret.
