-Groucho Marx

Mama was the greatest teacher,
a teacher of compassion,
love and earlessness.

Isn’t that a wonderful title for a new mother?
Chief cook and bottom washer.
-Robert Orben  

I always tried to make my home like my mother's, because Mom was magnificent at stretching a buck when it came to decorating and food. Like a true Italian, she valued beautification in every area of her life, and I try to do the same. 
-Rachael Ray

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.
