Famous Sayings on Mother

Whenever you are in distress or have to make a tough decision, you ponder over it for a while before coming up with a solution. The solution will surely be influenced by the kind of upbringing you have had; in short it will be a reflection of your mother's influence on your psyche. As explained by Aristotle in his theories, at birth, a human's mind is a blank slate and the people that grow up to be, are a result of the influences and experiences they go through. Hence, it gives way to a thought that a mother is the one who has the maximum influence on a child's psyche, as she is the one who spends most time with a baby whilst it grows up. The pains a mother undergoes, and the time she spends in upbringing of her child; for all of it, she deserves a hearty thanks. Mother's day celebrates the vastness of this divine gift and here are a few quotes which you can include in your wishes to give them an extra edge.
