In honor of Mother’s Day, I thought it would be fun to share some of these quotes I found after doing some research on Mother’s Day.

I hope you enjoy them!     

The best advice my mother ever gave to me was: ‘Strivers achieve what dreamers believe. If you put your mind to it, you can do it. Be careful what you wish for because you might get it. And, listen to me, I’ve been through it already.

Usher, singer. Mother: Jonnetta Patton

 

When I was young, my mother always used to quote to me First Corinthians 15:33 which, paraphrased, says bad associations spoil youthful habits. As I came to understand, what my mom was telling me was to be careful who you let into your life. That one piece of advice has saved me countless heart aches, and I’ve never forgotten it to this day.

    Gerald Levert, singer: Mother: Martha L. Levert

 

My mom once told me to always believe in yourself. Even if your chances are slim, or everyone else doesn’t believe in that, people will look up to you because you’re sticking to what you believe in, and they will admire that in you. That was the best advice I ever got from my mom.

Be happy. For we have only one life and that too is very short.

            Jyoti, Surat

 

The best advice my mother ever gave me is “Don’t let other people make the choices for you and don’t let no one push you around.

             Gabriela, 11, Canada

 

 My mom is always telling me to be independent and follow my dreams and I will live a good, happy life.

              Chris, 12, Alabama

 

 When I was young and dating men, my mom always told me to watch how my boyfriends treated their mothers. She said they would treat me the same way. I found this to be so true. I have a husband who thought the world of his mom and shows that same love to me. It’s the best advice my mom ever gave me.

Have a wonderful Mother’s Day!
