My son, hear the instruction of thy father, and forsake not the law of thy mother: For they shall be an ornament of grace unto thy head, and chains about thy neck. —Proverbs 1:8-9
There is no greater good in all the world than motherhood. The influence of a mother in the lives of her children is beyond calculation. —James E. Faust
