Motherhood

SHARE


Bunny Sheffield:


"The endless paradox of motherhood. I'm never alone, I've never been this lonely. It can be both boring and utterly miraculous. I've never felt so beautiful or so hideous, so tired or alive. I've never had so little, I've never had so much."


Anthony Trollope, Dr. Thorne:
“Of course, Lady Arabella could not suckle the young heir herself. Ladies Arabella never can. They are gifted with the powers of being mothers, but not nursing mothers. Nature gives them bosoms for show, but not for use. So Lady Arabella had a wet-nurse.”

Ani DiFranco:

"Birth is the epicenter of women’s power."

Carl Jung:

“Every Mother contains her daughter in herself and every daughter her mother and every mother extends backwards into her mother and forwards into her daughter.”
Dr. Johnson:
"High people, sir, are the best; take a hundred ladies of quality, you'll find them better wives, better mothers, more willing to sacrifice their own pleasures to their children, than a hundred other woman."
