"A mother is she who can take the place of all others but whose place no one else can take."
- Cardinal Mermillod
A mother's love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no pity, it dates all things and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. A good mother loves fiercely but ultimately brings up her children to thrive without her. We thrive to meet the standards of our mothers and hope to be half the woman they are someday.
