Here's a cpuple Mother's day quotes:
"A loving and careful mother both recognises and even protects her daughter's autonomy and also helps her dance out confidently on to a wider stage."
-Rachel Billington, b.1942, from "The Great Umbilical"
"My mother raised me, and then freed me."
Maya Angelou, b. 1928
"A mother and her daughter are never free of one another - no matter how they disagree.
For they are so entwined in heart and mind that,
gladly or unwillingly, they share each love, each joy, each sorrow and each bitter wrong life-long."
Pam Brown, b.1928
P.s. I can't speak for Mothers and Sons... I'll leave that to someone else ;)
