As Mother’s Day approaches, I thought we’d break from the usual nonsense and read some words of potential wisdom.
Viewpoints on motherhood and caring for the home:
- Motherhood is the biggest on-the-job training program in existence today. (Erma Bombeck)
- God could not be everywhere, so he made mothers (Jewish Proverb)
- Cleaning your house while your kids are still growing is like shoveling the walk before it stops snowing. (Phyllis Diller)
- We’re all in this together — by ourselves. (Lily Tomlin)
- Naming your baby after the beer you were stank ass drunk on when you conceived, well, it’s just a bad idea. Unless it’s Miller. That’s kind of nice. (Lorre – Articles of Absurdity)
Advice given by their mothers:
- If you always do what interests you, at least one person will be pleased. (Mother’s Advice to Katherine Hepburn)
- My mother said to me, “If you become a soldier, you’ll be a general; if you become a monk, you’ll end up the pope.” Instead, I became a painter and wound up as Picasso. (Pablo Picasso)
- Fill what’s empty. Empty what’s full. And scratch where it itches. (Alice Roosevelt Longworth)
- It is not fair to ask of others what you are not willing to do yourself. (Eleanor Roosevelt)
- Time wounds all heels. (Jane Ace)
