Still the most magical day of my life is the day I became a mom. -Linda Becker

There is no one perfect way to be a good mother. Each mother has different challenges, different skills and abilities, and certainly different children. The choice is different and unique for each mother and each family. -M. Russell Ballard

To a child’s ear, “mother” is magic in any language. -Arlene Benedict

Behind every young child who believes in himself is a parent who believed first. -Matthew L. Jacobson

A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dares all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. -Agatha Christie

Children are not a distraction from more important work. They are the most important work. -C.S. Lewis

A dysfunctional family is any family with more than one person in it. -Mary Karr

You must learn her. You must know the reason why she is silent. You must trace her weakest spots. You must write to her. You must remind her that you are there. You must know how long it takes for her to give up. You must be there to hold her when she is about to. You must love her because many have tried and failed. And she wants to know that she is worthy to be loved, that she is worthy to be kept. And, this is how you keep her. -Junot Diaz

You lose her for every second you make her feel less and less of the beauty that she is. When you make her feel that she is replaceable. She wants to feel cherished. When you make her feel that you are fleeting. She wants you to stay. When you make her feel inadequate. She wants to know that she is enough and she does not need to change for you, nor for anyone else because she is she and she is beautiful, kind and good. -Junot Diaz

And that’s when I know it’s over. As soon as you start thinking about the beginning, it’s the end. -Junot Diaz

You can’t regret the life you didn’t lead. -Junot Diaz

You ask everybody you know: How long does it usually take to get over it? There are many formulas. One year for every year you dated. Two years for every year you dated. It’s just a matter of will power: The day you decide it’s over, it’s over. You never get over it. -Junot Diaz
