Inspirational Quotes About Mothers Who Cherishes Our Life

Inspirational Quotes About Mothers - quotes about mothers

To honour all mothers around the world, I would like to share her quality first. Someone asked, “How can you define mother, what is she to you?”

There were numerous replies:

  • loving and caring being
  • a superwoman
  • a warrior
  • a compassionate personality
  • a role model
  • a resilient persona
  • a respectful and honorable person
  • a unique human being
  • a generous women
  • a wonderful person
  • best at enduring
  • intelligent and a lot more.

There are uncountable expressions for this exceptional personality in everyone’s life called “Mother”. The whole world of a child revolves around her, or you can say the entire world revolves around her personality—the most cherishable and celebrated figure in the world. It is often said that ‘Heaven lies under the feet of a mother’ while ‘Father is the door to heaven’. Heaven is entitled to those only, who honor the sacrifices and selfless devotion.

Fathers have their own role but a mother’s role is a lot more because her whole world is around her child.  If I were to describe a mother in a single word, it would be ‘Complete World of Love’. She is a charismatic personality and nothing in this world can compare her. It is a different experience for every mother, while on the journey towards motherhood. Whenever a child is born, a mother is born as well, because she was a woman before but not a mother.

Motherhood has many roles: the first lesson of life which a child learns is from her mother, as she is the first teacher of her child. Many times in various odd circumstances, she sleeps less, eats less, and forgets about her needs — all that she wants is her children’s priority. Many times, she leaves her career and chooses to stand with or beside her child. She sacrifices her wishes to accompany and fulfill her children’s dreams and struggles.

And to honor motherhood, Mother’s Day is celebrated every year on the 2nd Sunday of May. On this occasion of Mother’s Day 2022, we are going to appreciate her existence and the pivotal roles – as a mother and as the woman she is playing in our lives with some inspirational quotes. These inspirational quotes about mothers come from the bottom of the hearts of authors, celebrities, and common people.
