Thoughts for Thursday--Mothers

Thoughts for Thursday is a new meme hosted by Musings on Fantasia and LKHill.  In this meme, we share thoughts or quotes that we know or have recently come across. Each week there is a specific subject or theme. These can be quotes from books, quotes by famous people, (quotes by YOU, perhaps ;D). Anything from anywhere is game, though we do ask that you keep your quote to a few sentences at most. Don't quote, for example, entire passages of a book or essay. These can be funny quips, cool sayings, hair-raising antidotes, movie lines, any kind of quote you can think of!

Just have fun, collect awesome sayings by awesome people, and try to be inspired!

So I'm a week late on the theme again. I tend to do that with holiday themes. I should have done this last week, but oh well! This week's theme is quotes about mother/motherhood

Our mothers always remain the strangest, craziest people we've ever met.--Marguerite Duras
There's no bitch on earth like a mother frightened for her kids.--Stephen King
Mother's love is peace. It need not be acquired, it need not be deserved.--Erich Fromm
A mother's happiness is like a beacon, lighting up the future but reflected also on the past in the guise of fond memories.--Honore de Balzac
A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie.--Tenneva Jordan

Which quote is your favorite? Do you have one to add?
