“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve, because she was the mother of all living; for thus have I, the Lord God, called the first of all women, which are many.” – Moses 4:26
“No love in mortality comes closer to approximating the pure love of Jesus Christ than the selfless love a devoted mother has for her child… It is not only that they bear us, but they continue bearing with us. It is not only the prenatal carrying but the lifelong carrying that makes mothering such a staggering feat.” – Jeffrey R. Holland
