Marmee

“‘I want my daughters to be beautiful, accomplished, and good. To be admired, loved, and respected. To have a happy youth, to be well and wisely married, and to lead useful, pleasant lives, with as little care and sorrow to try them as God sees fit to send. To be loved and chosen by a good man is the best and sweetest thing which can happen to a woman, and I sincerely hope my girls may know this beautiful experience. It is natural to think of it, Meg, right to hope and wait for it, and wise to prepare for it, so that when the happy time comes, you may feel ready for the duties and worthy of the joy.'” 

Little Women, Louisa May Alcott 

Mrs. Weasley

“‘Beds empty! No note! Car gone … could have crashed … out of my mind with worry … did you care? … never, as long as I’ve lived … you wait until your father gets home, we never had trouble like this from Bill or Charlie or Percy …’ ‘Perfect Percy,’ muttered Fred. ‘YOU COULD DO WITH TAKING A LEAF OUT OF PERCY’S BOOK!’ yelled Mrs Weasley, prodding a finger in Fred’s chest. ‘You could have died, you could have been seen, you could have lost your father his job –’”

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, J.K. Rowling 

Miss Honey

“’A precocious child,’ Miss Honey said, ‘is one that shows amazing intelligence early on. You are an unbelievably precocious child.’ ‘Am I really?’ Matilda asked.”

Matilda, Roald Dahl 

Marilla Cuthbert

“I love you as dear as my own flesh and blood and you’ve been my joy and comfort ever since you came to Green Gables.” 

Anne of Green Gables , L.M. Montgomery 

Sam Hell’s Mom 

IMG_3618

“My mother wasted no time doting on me and recording every detail of my life, as evidenced by dozens of scrapbooks and photo albums she filled and  kept on the mahogany bookshelves in our living room. When it came to my life, my mother acted as if she were preserving the legacy of a future president for this presidential library. Even before cameras digitally recorded the date on individual photographs, she would write the day, month, and year on the white borders to note such momentous occasions as my first bath, my first meal in a highchair, and the obligatory first potty-training session. I also possess the hospital beanie and ankle bracelet I wore home from the hospital, as well as every report card I earned and every high school newspaper article I wrote.” 

The Extraordinary Life of Sam Hell, Robert Dugoni 

Rosie

“I wish for my child, for all our children, a world where they can be who they are and become their most loved, blessed, appreciated selves.” 

Laurie Frankel, This is How It Always Is

Ma 

IMG_3616

“‘You must feel an almost pathological need—understandably—to stand guard between your son and the world.’ ‘Yeah, it’s called being a mother.’ Ma nearly snarls it.” 

Emma Donoghue, Room

 

Happy Mother’s Day to my Mom! My favourite mother of all. She is wise like Marmee and bad ass like Mrs. Weasley. Loving like Marilla and nostalgic like Sam Hell’s mom. My mom is accepting like Rosie and protective like Ma. I hope you have an awesome Mother’s Day!
