...the Ganga is more than a river. She is the Holy Mother. She is Ganga Ma.
'What a wonderful boy he is!'said my mother. 'I'm feared he turn out to be a conceited gowk,'said old Barnet, the minister's man.james hogg

(mother's Day) is a tough holiday for Rahm Emanuel because he's not used to saying the word "day" after "mother".rahm emanuel
The present is the child, and the necessary child, of all the past, and the mother of all the future.
I am not collecting copies of the cheaper editions of Omar Khayyám. I gave the last four that I received to the lift-boy, and I like to think of him reading them, with FitzGerald's notes, to his aged mother. Lift-boys always have aged mothers; shows such nice feeling on their part, I think.saki
What is most unconscionable is that there is not a shred of evidence to justify the certain loss of life. Do the generalized threats and half-truths of this administration give any one of us in Congress the confidence to tell a mother or father or family that the loss of their child or loved one was in the name of a just cause?pete stark
Here’s a strange fact: murder a man, and you feel responsible for his life ’’possessive’’, even. You know more about him than his father and mother; they knew his fetus, but you know his corpse. Only you can complete the story of his life, only you know why his body has to be pushed into the fire before its time, and why his toes curl up and fight for another hour on earth.aravind adiga
We may be proud that England is the ancient country of Parliaments. With scarcely any intervening period, Parliaments have met constantly for 600 years, and there was something of a Parliament before the Conquest. England is the mother of Parliaments.john bright
I was born in Naples but my mother is from Rome , therefore some water from the Tiber river runs for sure in my veins.augusto de luca
Alice had managed to get herself back under some sort of control, but it was thin. Thin enough to read a newspaper through , his bingo-playing mother might have said. Although a kid herself, Alice had managed to keep herself shiny-side up mostly for the other kid's sake, so he wouldn't give way entirely.Stephen King
Feminism was always wrong to pretend that women could “have it all.” It is not male society but mother nature who lays the heaviest burden on woman. No husband or day care can adequately substitute for a mother’s attention. My feminist heroes are the boldly independent and childless Amelia Earhart and Katherine Hepburn, who has been outspoken in her opposition to the delusion of “having it all.”camille paglia
Thou wilt scarce be a man before thy mother.
Athens, the eye of Greece , mother of arts and eloquence, native to famous wits.john milton
When you have overcome one temptation, you must be ready to enter the lists with another. As distrust, in some sense, is the mother of safety, so security is the gate of danger. A man had need to fear this most of all, that he fears not at all.Thomas Brooks
"Very well," cried I, "that's a good girl; I find you are perfectly qualified for making converts, and so go help your mother to make the gooseberry pye."Oliver Goldsmith
Water is the mother of the vine, The nurse and fountain of fecundity, The adorner and refresher of the world.charles mackay
In the case of an unwanted pregnancy, the existential choice for a woman is not abortion vs. no abortion, but, as [Garrett Hardin] has pointed out, abortion vs. compulsory childbearing. If others can force her to be a mother... then she is coerced into putting her body at the disposal of the fetus as if she were an unclaimed natural resource or a chattel slave.... Thus, the woman's most fundamental right of choice, the right to control her own body and happiness, is being abrogated.
Anarchism is for liberty, and neither for nor against anything else. Anarchy is the mother of co-operation, yes, just as liberty is the mother of order; but, as a matter of definition, liberty is not order nor is Anarchism co-operation. I define Anarchism as the belief in the greatest amount of liberty compatible with equality of liberty; or, in other words, as the belief in every liberty except the liberty to invade.
Dear mother, dear mother, the Church is cold, But the Ale-house is healthy and pleasant and warm.william blake
As truly as God is our Father, so truly is God our mother.
